Authorities say one person has died at the scene after a car crashed into a passing train in western Washington. The Washington State Patrol reports Christopher M. Brock was the car driver in the fatal collision that happened 5 p.m. Friday in Burlington.

Authorities say Skagit County Sheriff’s deputies were trying to stop the 2019 Hyundai Elantra for traffic violations when the car suddenly turned on Garrett Road and crashed into the train, which was at the intersection of Garrett Road and State Route 20. The train then dragged the car for a mile before the car caught on fire.
