    Running the level crossing with lights flashing, siren blaring and barriers down is like playing Russian Roulette with a car.

    An unfortunate, but preventable incident.

    Anon, do you know the ins and outs of what actually happened that day? because i’m a close friend of Stuart Turner and even I don’t know how or why this happened. There’s a reason why that level crossing is known for being the most dangerous in the country, and I don’t think that ‘lights flashing, sirens blaring and barriers down’ justifies this.
