There was a heavy police presence at the railroad crossing at Fourth Line. Fourth Line was cordoned off between Wyecroft and Speers Road. A GO train was stopped at the crossing. Drivers were forced to take alternate routes. 

GO Transit first alerted customers to the incident along the Lakeshore West line in a tweet at 2:16 p.m. on April 10, stating,  "Lakeshore West customers: There is a railway crossing incident between Oakville GO and Bronte GO.

The incident seems to be significant, but police have yet to provide any additional information.
