An 82-year-old driver hit by a train in Lewis County earlier this month has died, according to Washington State Patrol.
Jerry W. Mullins of Curtis was driving east on state Route 6 near Twin Oaks Road when he apparently failed to see warning lights that a train was approaching. He was hit by the Chehalis No. 15, a Baldwin locomotive operated by the Chehalis-Centralia Railroad & Museum.
The crash occurred at about 6:45 p.m. July 15.
According to WSP, Mullins was taken to Providence Centralia Hospital and later transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he died.
