    Omg. Thank god the teens are ok and the driver...... This is a great example of the limousine owners that cause problems in the industry...... no permit.....i guarantee no workers comp insurance, no payroll, no taxes being paid to the state. They need to seize all the vehicles and crush them.....this owner will continue to run the company as he has been doing for a while. That size vehicle or party bus must approach railroad tracks with emeregency lights on and come to a complete stop before the tracks......roll down the windows and look both ways. I would also shut the power to the radio before crossing just to make sure you dont hear the train horn.
