Troopers say the man they watched drive around a railroad crossing with flashing gates was intoxicated.

On Colby Road in Pembroke on Sunday, State Police say they saw Scott Merrill of Darien Center stop at the down gates then veer around them across the railroad tracks, narrowly avoiding being hit by an Amtrak train.

Troopers stopped the 45-year-old and say they found he was intoxicated. Merrill was arrested for DWI.
