Motorcyclist Injured in Accident on Jefferson Street in Laredo, TX

Folks are often quick to blame motorcyclists for an accident, and it's entirely possible the victim made a mistake here. It happens--in fact it's quite common. But the fact the motorcycle lost control right when it crossed a railroad, I can't help wondering if there are known issues with this crossing. If the crossing isn't properly maintained or if locals expressed hazards that the city failed to address, could it be that's what led to this crash? It may not be the kind of thing this department is used to investigating, so more thorough investigations may be necessary here.
