Commuter train smashes FedEx truck.Video

This guy is lieing. He says the gates were working properly, when the video clearly shows the gates up and the signals out, when the train hits the truck. My guess is that the maintainer let the gates up to clear the traffic jam, without checking with the dispatcher.

He says inspections show the gates work correctly and says they are investigating them being manually overridden.
