Dang, amazing that the reporter knew where to find the FRA crossing information as the info on the crossing sounds like it was taken directly from the report. Gotta wonder why the driver did not evacuate the bus immediately though. If anything would have made it lighter and easier to get it off the crossing.

Local news story tonight said the bus driver was off the recommended route. He was not supposed to be crossing the tracks at this location. Two lawsuits were filed today against the bus company.
