Train Hits Van after Van Goes Around Crossing Gates

(NBC News) New video out today shows just how dangerous it is to drive around railroad crossing gates.

The pictures come from Houston, Texas where last week the driver of a van drove around the gate only to be hit by a speeding commuter train.

The light rail train then drags the vehicle before coming to a stop.

Two adults and two children in the van suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the driver will be ticketed for running a red light and going around the crossing gates.
