HOUSTON, Texas — Jose Carpio was working on his 2014 gray Ford Mustang when it fell onto his face and chest and pinned him from the waist up. His mother and girlfriend called 911, but as the ambulance arrived on June 23, his mother watched it back up and turn around. It had to find another route because a train was blocking the intersection next to his home in the 5300 block of Jefferson Street. Statewide, nearly 600 people have reported stalled trains to the Texas Department of Transportation since 2018, and crossings in Houston were responsible for more than 25 percent of those complaints.
