    I can't find all grammer errors, could you please help med with this text.

    And you thought you had a bad day?
    While motorcycling through the hungarian countryside, Cristo Falatti came up to a railway line just as the crossing gates was coming down. While he sat idling, he was joined by a farmer with a goat, who the farmer tethered to the crossing gate. A few moments later a horse and cart drawed up behind Falatti. Behind them, it was a man in a sports car. When the train roared through the crossing, the horse startled and bit Falatti on the arm. Not a man to be trifled with, Falatti responded by to punch the horse in the head. In consequence, the horses owner jumped down from his cart and began scuffling with the motorcyclist. The horse, which was not up to this sort of excitement, backed away brisk, smashing the cart into the sports car. At this, the sports car driver leaped out of his car and joined the fray. The farmer came forward to try to pacify the three fighting men. As he did so, rose the crossing gates and his goat was strangled. At last report, the insurance companies still tried to sort out the claims.
