Both the railways and our other institutions, all measures have been taken. There are mutual barriers there, as you have already seen in the videos. There is the lighting system, there is the sound system and it all works. All the vehicles are stopped, there is a motorcycle there. However, this driver acted hastily, acted impatiently and bypassed the closed barrier and got in front of the incoming freight train. It is not possible to accept this. Sounds like a complete driver error. The prosecutor's office, the courthouse and our gendarmerie are examining them and they will give the necessary verdict."
