Riverside posts new RR warning signs

RIVERSIDE, Calif. City officials hope the signs can help prevent another tragedy like the one that claimed the life of an /*Arlington High School*/ student last month.

Samuel Sung-Jae Shin, 14, was struck and killed by a /*Metrolink*/ train last month. Shin had stopped to let a westbound train pass, but then tried to cross the tracks and was hit by a train coming the other direction.

The Jackson Street crossing where Shin died was the first to get one of the 36-inch wide signs, which read: "Look both ways, trains may approach from different directions."
