Man sues over wife, son's 2011 train deaths

HARTFORD CITY (AP) — A north-central Indiana man whose pregnant wife and 10-month-old son were killed in a car-train crash has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against two railroad companies.

Thomas A. Janero's suit filed Monday in Blackford Circuit Court seeks unspecified damages from Norfolk Southern Railway Co. and CSX Transportation and contends that a building near the site of the September 2011 collision limited the visibility of approaching trains.

Janero's 22-year-old wife, Kristen Marie Janero, and their son, Xander, died when the car they were passengers in was struck by a train in Montpelier, about 35 miles south of Fort Wayne.
