You also are correct, GRJ.  The devil is in the details.  By massaging the details, one can create alternative facts.

As I get a little long in the tooth, I have more sympathy for "elderly couples" who get confused or fail to notice what is happening.  But all too often, these crossing accidents are the result of a knowing choice (going around the gates) or negligence (failure to STOP-LOOK-LISTEN).

Several decades ago, we had a horrific accident here in Virginia.  The Catlett VFD was responding to a fire.  The driveway to the fire crossed the Southern single-track mainline, guarded only by a crossbuck.  Blowing their siren loudly, they didn't hear the train horn.  Several firemen were killed.
