Even if you're the white rabbit and you're late for a very important date, NEVER cross railroad tracks when the gates are down.  This is a lesson learned by -- not one driver, but TWO drivers last night, who were each involved in separate train-car crashes at the same crossing in Meridian Township after trying to cross the tracks while the gates were down.

Both drivers escaped injury, but both vehicles were destroyed.  WLNS-TV has the whole story here!
