Car hit by train in Olathe was parked on tracks, spokesman says

A motorist fatally struck by a train this morning in Olathe was parked on the tracks and didn't attempt to move, a railroad spokesman said today. The incident blocked seven intersections just west of Olathe from Dennis Avenue to Poplar Street, including Santa Fe, but the crossings are now open again.
