They just recently put in the concrete road dividers at this crossing. Some semis have tried to turn here at this intersection. Well, one was not very successful today as he drove into the gate and bent it (you can see this in the video how it is sticking way at an angle). Amtrak Empire Builder #8 had just left the Winona, MN depot and had to stop and flag this crossing. Apparently, people do not know what that means. A semi comes flying around the corner and decides to just go across the tracks even with the conductor there! So she wrote his plate down. A few other cars were going to try to go as well and she was not having it. Good on her! When she went by us, she smiled and waved to us though. :) Also, note the private car...the Sierra Hotel.

***UPDATE*** I have since talked to the conductor and she informed me that the semi driver was prosecuted.
