On August 28, 2019, local train 3501 of Taiwan Railways Administration, MOTC (TRA), departed at 05:20 a.m. from Chaozhou Station, bound for Taitung Station. While leaving Jiadong Station, train driver 3501 found that the front level crossing block was not actuated and stopped the train immediately. Subsequently, the Tze-Chiang Limited Express 333, a non stop train at Jiadong station, passed a wayside indicator showing proceed indication.  However, the driver saw train 3501 stopped on the platform track which should be clear for train passing on, and applied brake immediately. Both train 3501 and 333 were safe. No one on board was injured.
