Bob Crow, the general secretary of the RMT transport union has commented on this morning's crash at the level crossing near Taunton, calling for action to be taken to address the dangers.
This latest, shocking fatality will once again shine the spotlight on safety issues at level crossings.
RMT has been campaigning for many years to speed up the phasing-out of level crossings which are a 19th Century solution in an age of high-speed railways.
Wherever road and track come together there is a clear and present danger and as we see far too often it is a lethal combination and the time has come to get serious about addressing this issue - cost should not override public and staff safety.
