Truck snaps railroad crossing gate

Burlington Northern Santa Fe workers redirect traffic and engage in repairs at the railroad crossing near the intersection of Jefferson Street and Highway 10 in Wadena Monday, after a truck drove through the crossing.

BNSF employee Jake May said the truck of unknown size drove through the gate, breaking it in half, at approximately 2:30 p.m.

A dispatcher with the Wadena County Sheriff's Department said an officer stopped the truck after the incident occurred.
