Fire officials warn drivers about railroad crossing dangers

Last week's fatal Metro North crash in Valhalla has prompted the Wilton Fire Department to offer some advice to drivers who encounter similar railroad crossings along the Danbury Branch. 

 

Before crossing tracks, the Fire Department says you should assume that there is a train coming.  That means never driving around lowered crossing gates, whether you're in a car, on a bike or motorcycle.  When you're stuck in traffic, Wilton Fire officials say you should wait until there's enough room past the crossing gates before moving forward across the tracks. 

 

If your car gets stuck on the tracks or in between crossing gates, leave your car and get to safety.
