With a crash like this, it's easy for people to jump to conclusions. After all, trains are pretty easy to spot in most situations.

But that doesn't warrant overlooking other possible factors. Issues with lighting, signals, signage, the crossing guards, overgrowth in the area, or other factors can lead to a crash like this with drivers having little to no control over the situation. Even if it's just to rule out those factors, thorough investigations are always important for getting clear answers about a serious crash.
