Car-Train Collision In Gulfport

A Kiln man is recovering after his car was struck by a train Monday morning.

Gulfport Police say Calvin Fratesi, 29, was heading north on Kelley Avenue when he failed to stop at the train tracks. Witnesses say the train sounded its horn before crashing into Fratesi's Ford Explorer. A relative told WLOX News that he is deaf, and therefore could not hear the train's horn.

Fratesi was taken to Memorial Hospital with what Emergency workers told WLOX were not life threatening injuries.

Police cited Fratesi with disregard of a traffic control device and no proof of insurance.
