Washington County has more than three dozen railroad crossings, and motorists face a daily danger from large passing trains, many weighing 3,000 tons or more. “Anytime you have a railroad that's crossing in the same space as a vehicle, there's the opportunity for a collision,” said Robert Slocum, deputy director of the county Division of Public Works. Although rail-highway collisions have dropped by about 80 percent since 1972, 1,960 total incidents were reported nationwide on public and private crossings in 2012, including 271 fatalities, according to preliminary data from the Federal Railroad Administration.

The pits are about 1 1/2 feet deep. They are covered in 6 inches of topsoil, then filled with water. The teams have 12 players. They arrive dressed in T-shirts and shorts. They bump, spike, slide, splash and leave drenched in thick, pasty mud. This fundraising recipe has been a 14-year jackpot known as the MUDD Volleyball Tournament to benefit the Community Free Clinic of Washington County. The annual event oozed and splashed around again Saturday behind Citi's Family Center north of Hagerstown.
