This crossing is located on the CN Yazoo Subdivision.

 

Note: Despite the FRA saying that this crossing had 6 accidents, I'm counting it as 7 for reasons below.

I would've gotten this crossing photographed on March 19, 2021, but for some reason, at the time I got there, a train was already blocking the way of the railroad crossing, which stopped, and forced me to take a dirt road as my alternate route to get around. When I got to the next crossing, I've seen an ambulance coming through, which made me think that the train had to stop, but I'm not entirelly sure what happened, hence the accidents number is 7, even though FRA has yet to even update it.
