The Crossing Memorial

The Crossing MonumentWhen Officer Ron Richardson told me about The Crossing memorial, he said that in 1961 a passenger train traveling 80 mpr hit a school bus. What I later learned from Mayor Gilbert Marin when I returned from taking pictures of the memorial, was that officer Richardson’s wife was a survivor of the accident. The Rocky Mountain News has a full featured article on their site; click this link to learn more about the incident, those that survived, and those that lost their lives and their families.  (site is gone)

You can find this memorial on county road (CR) 52, between CR 43 and 45 off highway 34 which runs east from Greeley Colorado; yet before Kersey.  (lost link:
