HYANNIS - When I approached the intersection I noticed that the lights and bells were activated, the Westbound gate( toward the Airport Rotary) was down, and it appeared that the eastbound gate( toward Yarmouth) had closed atop the shuttle bus and had broke off. Whether the driver proceeded improperly, or was stuck in that location when the gate closed is unclear.
I noticed a CC Railroad employee exiting the train and presumably summoning help on his radio. It did not appear that there were injuries. (Photos by Jon Mayo.)
