– Just before 7:30 a.m. Saturday a Dodge Durango SUV struck and knocked down the railroad grade crossing assembly at the railroad crossing in West Barnstable in the area of Bayview Farm at 1247 Route 6A. The large steel mast and its signal lights and crossing gate fell across the tracks.

The driver of the SUV was transported to Cape Cod Hospital with injuries that were not life threatening. The rail traffic was suspended until the assembly could be removed.

The Barnstable Police Department is investigating.
