"In the last two weeks, I've called 911 at least six times to say
the gates were malfunctioning," said Hassett, whose restaurant is at
3050 S. Winton Road. "I was like, 'Someone is going to get killed out here.'
They said that CSX had been notified. A lot of times, a train would come, the
gates would come down and they wouldn't go back up. But today, the gates didn't go down.
That's what's really weird."
"We have been trying to get a CSX repair crew out here to look at the tracks for most of the day.
They have not responded," [Gates Police Chief] Roche said. "The response time is unacceptable."
