Union Pacific Railroad and the family of a man killed in a train crash in Minnesota have reached a settlement. Union Pacific has agreed to pay $650,000 to the family of Todd Ziegler. He and another man were in a county dump truck that was struck by three locomotives near Crystal Lake in July 2009. Both 43-year-old Ziegler and 42-year-old Jack Baker were killed. Based on the investigation of this crash, it’s probable that the two men never heard the train whistle due to the noise of the dump truck. This railroad crossing was the only one in the area that didn’t have lights or crossing arms.
