the crossing gates were up and the flashing lights and bells that normally indicate a train is approaching were not active. Well, they activated after the train hit the trailer! What kind of gyp joint is this?

Preliminary information indicates the gates were affected by the severe ice and snow conditions at the time and were in the default “down and active” position, as they are programmed. After an employee responded to the location, the gates moved to the up position. The agency has never had an accident like this before, and UTA is investigating why and how it happened to ensure it doesn’t occur again," UTA wrote in a statement released Tuesday. There were no serious injuries in the accident.
