The Vigo County Sheriff's Department plans to increase enforcement efforts near a creek where people like to jump off a rail trestle.
At least three people have been injured in the last two years after being struck by trains on the trestle over Otter Creek in western Indiana.
Jessica Feder of Indiana Operation Lifesaver tells the Tribune-Star that people are risking their lives when they jump from the trestle.
Chief Deputy Clark Cottom says the sheriff's department will step up enforcement to keep trespassers from returning. He says violators will be ticketed, and Vigo County Prosecutor Terry
Modesitt pledges to take a "hard line" on such cases.
Railroad trestles and tracks are private property. Those arrested for trespassing could face up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine.
