The caution lights on the crossing appeared to be in working order, police said.

A street sign was damaged during the collision. The tractor-trailer sustained minor damage.

There was no damage to the train.

Officials say the accident could have been worse, but see this as a warning.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day is concerned about volatile bakken crude oils on the rails rolling past schools and homes. Other parts of the country have endured devastating derailments and explosions.

“This is a reminder for us why we need safe zones, safe lessons and quiet zones,” Day told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams. “This time it was garbage, it could have been bakken crude.”

The county will be getting improved crossing gates later this year.

“These gates have two or three layers of gates around them and they essentially box out the crossing,” Day said.

There was no gate at the crossing where the latest incident occurred.
