Some northwest Iowa residents want more safety devices placed where two little girls were fatally injured when a train struck a car they were in with their mother and big brother.
Two-year-old Camille Binder and her 4-year-old sister, Chloe, died Feb. 14 at a Sioux Falls, S.D., hospital. Their brother and mother were hospitalized.
Officials in Alta say the safety lights and alarms were working properly at the time of the crash on Feb. 13. But some residents in the community of 1,900 people say the lights and audible signal aren't enough. They want crossing arms installed, too.
Mayor Ronald Neulieb says he's already called the Iowa Transportation Department and says, "I'll just keep pursuing it until we get it done."
