Glover Ave Train Crossing 2/15/14
Updated On: Oct 09, 2019

February 15, 2014

The Norwalk Fire Department along with Norwalk Police responded to a motor vehicle accident at the Glover Ave train crossing which is on the Danbury branch line.  The accident was reported at 6:29 pm and the first fire company arrived on scene at 6:34 and reported that an unoccupied cargo van that became stuck on the train crossing was struck by a train traveling towards Danbury.  The van was traveling eastbound on Glover Ave and while traveling around a corner slid into a snow bank that was next to the tracks.  It was snowing at the time of the accident and the roads were very slippery.  The driver was attempting to shovel out the vehicle when the warning lights and gates started to activate at which time he removed himself from the area to avoid injury to himself.  The train which had approximately 100 passengers on board was slowing down as it was entering the Merritt seven station. None of the passengers reported any injuries at the time of the accident and several of them made other arrangement to continue on to Danbury.   Minor damage was reported to the locomotive but the crossing gate and arm was heavily damaged.  The van was towed from the scene and MTA police were on scene investigating the accident.
