Train Crash Victim Identified

Police have identified the man killed when his car was struck by a New Jersey Transit train in Emerson New Jersey on Thursday morning. Around 5:40 AM the 5:10 Pascack Valley line train out of Spring Valley crashed into 87-year old Valcav Budak while his car was on the tracks. Officials are stating that the man drove on the tracks for a little less than one mile before the collision, though they are unsure why he was on them. The conductor was able to move the train far enough from the burning car to prevent further injuries, and the line remained closed for most of the morning while authorities cleaned and investigated the scene.
