Appears to have happened back in November. Maintainer working on crossing bungalow, gates didn't activate until Metra train was on top of crossing. Police car, narrowly avoided collision.

Maintainer dispatched there for another reason per Metra.
Coincidence that this happened while the maintainer was there?
Standing in the bungalow.
Why do I think not.
