According to Downeaster Facebook post "Train 680 has been annulled due to a freight train incident." Anyone have any details on this "incident?"

There is a "private" crossing at 303 Knox Marsh Road.
It is equipped with flashing signals. Downeaster #680
was cancelled. Downeaster #682 is running as usual,
but will have to stop and protect at that Madbury
crossing. Possibly, the crossing protection was
damaged in the incident..
