    I'm surprised he even tried to cross there; that would be risky even pulling a dry van or reefer.

    most likely, a newbie, and took his GPS as gospel.

    if he didn't see that incline, then he's as dumb as they come.

    Seems like train had full power on at impact still.. I wonder how long he was stuck there if authorities had time to try and call Amtrak.
