A train malfunction has blocked a normally busy road in Manatee County.
The crossing near the 1800 block of 53rd Avenue E -- better known as State Road 70 -- is closed because a train is stuck on the tracks nearby. That's just east of 15th Street E.
The problem was initially reported as a derailment, but the sheriff's office now says that the crossing arms are struck because the train stopped close to the crossing.
A spokesman blamed rain for the train's troubles.
The road will likely be closed through rush hour.
