Railroad grade crossing accident injures women week before crossing upgrade activated

A woman was recently injured at a grade crossing that did not have activated lights giving her little warning and not enough time to stop causing the train to smash into the front of her car. The crash happened around 11 p.m. which can make it even harder for drivers to see oncoming trains if there are no lights to warn them.

More than a year ago another person died at the same crossing which only had a stop sign as a warning.

Lights were recently installed at the crossing but have not yet been activated.

Stories like these showcase the importance of having active warning signals at every railroad grade crossing that may have prevented these accidents.
