GLEN ROCK, NJ - A 59-year-old Glen Rock man received a summons after a NJ Transit train smashed the front end of his car and ripped off his bumper, according to police.
On November 24 just after 7 a.m., the driver of a blue 2015 Honda, who was not injured, was struck by a commuter train at the Rock Road Bergen County Line station. Police said he was issued a summons by the Transit Officer for disregard of a railroad signal and gates.
"The engineer was not immediately aware of the collision as the head end of the train had already cleared the crossing," police said.
State law requires motorist to stop between 15 and 50 feet of a railroad crossing when a signal warns of an approaching train, police said. The wrecked vehicle was towed from the scene.
