By Piet Levy Post-Tribune staff writer

Recently released surveillance footage shows just how two trains crashed into a Hammond mother's minivan Saturday, killing her two daughters.

The video, captured by Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District cameras at the Hammond station parking lot, shows a CSX freight train traveling east, toward Johnson Avenue, near the Hudson Street intersection.

The video, captured by Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District cameras at the Hammond station parking lot, shows a CSX freight train traveling east, toward Johnson Avenue, near the Hudson Street intersection.

Suddenly, a dark-colored minivan driven by Edie Bolanos blurs into the picture. Outpaced by the train, the eastbound van starts to pick up speed in the adjacent parking lot, parallel to the freight train. The van eventually takes the lead.

Suddenly, a dark-colored minivan driven by Edie Bolanos blurs into the picture. Outpaced by the train, the eastbound van starts to pick up speed in the adjacent parking lot, parallel to the freight train. The van eventually takes the lead.

Footage from another surveillance camera shows the van approaching a barrier. It sharply turns left and goes through a tight turn to the right, around the barrier and onto Johnson Avenue.

The van speeds toward the tracks. The eastbound train is about to hit the intersection. It's not there yet.

But a westbound train is, just in time to smash into the left side of the van.

The van bounces off the train onto the eastbound tracks. The train Bolanos was trying to outrun collides into its right side.

Bolanos' daughters, Crystal, 11, and Anahi, 8, were killed on impact, pronounced dead at the scene a little after 10:35 a.m.

Bolanos herself is in critical condition at Loyola University Health Services in Maywood, Ill. Family friend Monica Segura said Tuesday her condition was deteriorating.

Bolanos' two sons, 3-year-old Daniel and 13-year-old Leon, survived. They were treated at Comer Children's Hospital in Chicago on Saturday, improved to good condition by Tuesday and were discharged Wednesday.

The funerals are at 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Mary's Church, 812 W. 144th St., in East Chicago, with burial to follow at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens, 8178 Cline Ave.

The wakes are today and Friday between 2 and 8 p.m. at Chapel Lawn.

Segura said a benefit will be hosted at 9 p.m. Saturday at Durango Bar and Grill, 4536 S. Hohman Ave., in Hammond. Admission is $10.

Segura already organized a benefit with Bolanos' neighbor, Rafael Ruiz, set for Wednesday night as of press time. Cash donations can be made at any Centier Bank location, Segura said.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Segura said they were receiving donations from multiple businesses, and one woman contacted her to donate $500 toward the caskets.

Monetary donations for the family can be made at any Centier Bank location, Segura said.

Sgt. Mike Jorden said the case still is under investigation.

There are currently no guard arms at the intersection where the crash took place, but there are flashing lights warning drivers of approaching trains.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Before I watched the video I thought that it was all just an unfortunate accident. After watching the video I can only conclude that the woman wanted to take her life and the lives of her children by doing that.

I could be drugged out of my gourd and still not be stupid enough to attempt such a thing.

Who the fuck tries to beat a train in a god damn minivan? What is her son going to say when people ask about his sister? "Yeah my mother murdered her."?

Fliped - sorry to hear about your friends. Both so young and in seperate incidents.


That mom is fucked. Why does the driver/perpetrator always survive?

I raced a train on foot one time in college and almost lost. I'm alive today by literal fractions of a second. It was about a block away when I decided that I could make it across the tracks and started to run. Those things move fast. By the time I made it between the tracks, only a few seconds from when I decided to go for it, the train was already entering the far lane of traffic.
