COLUMBIA TOWNSHIP - Changes have been made to a railroad crossing in the aftermath of a car crash that claimed the lives of four Brunswick teenagers.

Officials have installed flashing stop signs at the Boston Road crossing.

In addition to the flashing signs, the a Medina newspaper plans are underway to level the road, making it safer when crossing the tracks. Currently the steep grade causes cars to go airborne.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the car the Brunswick teens were in was traveling at a high rate of speed when it crossed the tracks vaulting the car into the air. The teen driver overcorrected and the car crashed in the early morning of June 3.

A fifth teen in the car survived.
