Portland, ME: Wilful misuse, children in car

30 Jan

A local man drove around vehicles already stopped at the St John Street level crossing in Portland, Maine on January 27th, 2017. The motorist who had two young children in the back of the car entered the level crossing at which barriers were lowered into the path of a passenger train at which point a collision occurred. The motorist was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The children, not related to the driver of the vehicle, were not injured and were returned to a parent. Now, the motorist can expect to be prosecuted for his wilful misuse of the level crossing.
