ROY, Utah, April 25, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — A driver in Roy struck railroad equipment at a crossing on 6000 South, causing damage that will require the road to be closed through all of Saturday.

“At 0727 hours, a suspected intoxicated driver crashed into the railroad crossing arm equipment at the 6000 S. railroad crossing,” a Saturday morning Facebook post from the Roy City Police Department says.
