(ATCHISON COUNTY, Mo.) A Clarinda, Iowa man died after the vehicle he was driving was hit by a train Saturday afternoon.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, the accident happened when 52-year-old Troy Landess, of Clarinda, Iowa, was driving east on a private levy access road, two miles west of Highway 11 and five miles south of Rock Port, and attempted to cross a private railroad crossing that was controlled by a stop sign only. The train, traveling north, hit the front passenger side of Landess's vehicle partially ejecting Landess.

Landess was taken to Nemaha County Hospital, where he later died. He was wearing a seat belt.

The forecast for today will be very similar to yesterday: cooler, hazy, and sunny. The hazy sky is a result of the wild fires out to the west of us. Tonight should be cool as well with lows in the lower 60s and calm winds. Dry and sunny conditions continue into next week as temperatures stay seasonal. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and the humidity will be moderate, feeling a lot more comfortable than last week.
