Railroad crash survivors sue

Survivors and the family of those who died when a car was hit by a train near Harriman are suing Norfolk Southern Railway Co., Norfolk Southern Corp. and three railroad employees.

The suit alleges the railroad failed to provide adequate audible and visual warning of an oncoming train at the crossing on Mountain View Road, where two young people died last May and two others were injured.

Darius Gallaher, a former Roane State Raider basketball player, was driving a 2000 Nissan Maxima through the crossing when it was struck by the train.
