Rockland state lawmakers call out DOT following train/truck crash

No injuries in this collision between a CSX train and a car carrier

WEST NYACK – A CSX freight train struck a car-carrier truck at the railroad crossing at Pineview Road in West Nyack at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday and two state lawmakers are criticizing the state Department of Transportation about it.

No one was injured in this incident, but Senator David Carlucci and Assemblyman Thomas Abinanti said they are “too common.” The lawmakers noted that a person was killed at a railroad crossing in Haverstraw last month.

“It’s completely unacceptable that the State Department of Transportation continues to sit by idle and violate law by not delivering their rail grade crossing safety study,” Carlucci and Abinanti said in a joint statement.

Clarkstown Police investigated this latest incident.
