BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Boca Raton police want to speak to anyone who saw an SUV crash into a train, killing one person in the car.

Police say 49-year-old Anthony Carter was driving his SUV Saturday afternoon when he crashed through the downed railroad crossing gate.

A Tri-Rail train rammed into the side of his car, pushing it along the tracks. Carter was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are asking for witnesses of the crash to contact detectives.
