Authorities have released the name of the man who died Saturday afternoon when the car he was driving collided with a Trinity Railway Express passenger train.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office identified the man as Mohammed Al-Tayyeb, 43, but did not list his home city.

He was pronounced dead at 2:45 p.m. Saturday at the scene of the wreck in the 12000 block of Calloway Cemetery Road in northeast Fort Worth.

According to an eyewitness, the car went around lowered gates at the tracks, said Joan Hunter, a TRE spokeswoman. The gates and the signals were working properly, Hunter said.

No one was injured among the 150 or so train passengers. The road and track reopened about 6:45 p.m. Saturday.
