It's going to be awhile before we can hop on a train again.

As we reported earlier, Survivor star Caleb Bankston died in a train accident on Tuesday, but now we know how.

When the train crashed, the former reality TV contestant was actually crushed to death by 2 rail cars as it derailed.

The railway worker was simply doing his job, checking on a small space between two of the cars when the train jumped off the tracks and the rear car smashed into the forward car.

What a disastrous accident.

Generally, such details bring closure to loved ones, but we doubt his fiancé Colton Cumbie will find any comfort in these new findings.

We'll continue to give more heart-wrenching updates as the investigation continues in hopes of understanding what caused the derailment.

    Goodness I feel for Caleb's family and loves ones. But the media needs to stop reporting Caleb and Colton were engaged at the time of his death…. FACT: they weren't, and it's hurting those close to him by perpetuating this lie.
