Loma Linda couple die in train crash Roy L. Atcheson, 85, and his wife, Sallie, 79, both of Loma Linda, were two of three people killed Monday night when their car and a Southern Pacific Freight train collided at a railroad crossing seven miles south of Modesto. The third victim was Bertha Truitt, 75, of Turlock, a passenger in the Atchesons' car. A California Highway Patrol spokesman reported witnesses saying Atcheson drove slowly into the path of the 100-car train which pushed the auto about half a mile before stopping. The Atchesons were both born in Texas and resided at 11481 South Anderson street, Loma Linda. He was an accountant for 60 years. Survivors include his sister, Rose A. Corwin of Alhambra, and her two brothers, Renrick B. Mosley and Gilbert R. Mosley, both of Texas. Services will be at H a.m. Friday in the Loma Linda University Chapel.
