Authorities are trying to figure out why a Ventura County woman’s van ran into a passenger train, leaving her dead, and a second person injured.
The accident happened just before 11 a.m. yesterday, off of Las Posas Road in Camarillo. Ventura County firefighters say a van driven by Misty Wood smashed into a northbound Amtrak train, and careened into a railroad pickup truck parked nearby. A man in the truck was injured.
The Ojai woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
No one on the train was injured, but it was delayed for hours.
