Kenneth Roy Sanders
Apr 13, 1934 - Oct 4, 2002

10/5/2002 Kerens crash kills 1; two others airlifted from Corsicana

By LOYD COOK/Daily Sun Staff

KERENS -- A local man was killed Friday after his vehicle collided with a Union Pacific train. Some two hours later, an accident west of Corsicana led to two men being airlifted to Dallas.

Kenneth Roy Sanders, 69, was traveling northbound on Humphrey Avenue in Kerens just before 1 p.m. when his vehicle was struck by the westbound train. The force of impact carried the vehicle most of the next block, with his 1995 Chevrolet Corsica knocked into a large, grassy lot adjacent to the railroad tracks on the north, leaking gasoline into a shallow ditch nearby.

Precinct 2 Constable David Foreman, one of the first emergency responders on the scene, said Sanders was wearing his seatbelt.

A City of Kerens employee told law enforcement officers on the scene that he heard the Union Pacific train give several frantic blasts on its air horn in an attempt to warn the driver.

Union Pacific press releases over the years have repeatedly stated the lengthy distances required fore a loaded train to stop. In this case, only the last 15 or 20 railcars of the train still stretched to the east from the accident while the engine was out of sight to the west.

The collision left the Corsica in a U-shape, with its passenger side crushed into the middle of the vehicle. Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Connie Mayfield pronounced Sanders dead at the scene after a brief inquest. Services are pending with Paschal Funeral Home.

A local resident downtown near Kerens City Hall said she had seen Mr. Sanders down the street just moments before the accident.

It was perhaps one of the longest emergency responses into the county to date for the newly-activated Corsicana Fire Rescue EMS ambulance service, but it was for naught. Also responding to the scene was the Kerens Volunteer Fire Department, Kerens Police Department, Corsicana Fire Department's Engine No. 2 and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers.

Later in the afternoon, a maroon Dodge Ram pickup apparently ran into a forklift occupied by two men west of Corsicana on State Highway 31, about a half-mile beyond the city limits. The names of the driver of the pickup, apparently the only person occupying that vehicle, and the two men on the forklift were unknown at press time.

Details were also incomplete, but DPS Trooper Pat Brice said the truck apparently could not stop fast enough after coming up behind the forklift.

The driver of the truck was transported by CFD ambulance to Navarro Regional Hospital, while the two men on the forklift were airlifted to Dallas on separate helicopters with head injuries, according to emergency radio transmissions.
