CSX crossing signal repaired in Bellevue after malfunctioning

Posted: Updated:
BELLEVUE, TN (WSMV) -

UPDATE: CSX has confirmed the crossing signal was repaired Sunday morning.

A spokesperson said the signal near the intersection of McCrory Road and Highway 70 is working again.

According to CSX, members of the public are able to report malfunctioning crossing signals to the public safety communication center at 800-232-0144. Every crossing has a unique number that is displayed on either side of the crossing. Officials advise tracking down that number when reporting the issue so crews can get to the correct location more quickly.

A well-known, dangerous railroad crossing in Bellevue appears to have a malfunctioning warning signal.

The crossing is just before the intersection of McCrory Road and Highway 70. A viewer submitted video shows the crossing signal working, until suddenly the lights flicker and stop flashing. Seconds later, a train comes into frame, going full speed through the crossing.

Several times throughout the video, the signal's lights appear to stop working.

This McCrory Road crossing has seen several accidents in recent years. Several groups locally are rallying for improved signals at this intersection.

“I think it's a danger for people who don't pay attention, it's a danger for people who do pay attention,” Kevin Holmes. “There's no gate that comes down, telling me not to cross through here. If those lights aren't flashing, it doesn't matter how much I’m paying attention, by the time I realize a train is coming, it has already hit me."

News 4 reached out out to CSX for comment on this story, but we have not heard back.
