    We got to make all trains and dump trucks illegal.
    That way it'll never happen again.

    Looks like the driver didn't get proper training when it comes to railroad crossings.

    No worries, ELD's & speed limiters combined will all put an end to things like this.

    I'am gonna defend the driver
    I've crossed that same RR crossing my fair share of times loading off a couple farms there that's not a very good crossing it's a uncontrolled crossing there's no F...ing signals or gates .. and the Amtrack trains move at a high rate of speed 75 to 100 mph through there .. Mendon is just a little 1 horse town ..

    There should be no such thing as an uncontrolled railroad crossing. 1 horse town or not. Is it a clear view in each direction? Do you think he was just trying to beat it?
