BOVINA (KSMX)- The Bovina Volunteer Fire Department is urging drivers to heed warning signs at railroad crossings after two different crashes between trains and vehicles in Parmer County on the same day.


On Saturday, the department responded to a crash between a car and a train at a railroad crossing at North Street in front of City Hall in Bovina.


Assistant Fire Chief Daniel Mayberry said the crossing was closed for a while due to construction in the area, but it has since reopened with crossing arms and flashing lights.


The driver of the car received several broken bones and a concussion in the wreck and was taken to a hospital in Friona. Officials said that the driver had to be pulled from his car from his passenger side.
