    complete idiots. in so much of a rush to go about thier pointless lives they can wait 1 minute for a train to go by. i see this all the time where i live, the tracks go right through the highstreet, and the barrier doesn`t go across the whole road. dumbasses always shooting through at the last second

    ^^They could have set cameras to catch violators. Maybe people frequently cross the tracks illegally here, and the police department wanted license plate numbers.

    Or it was staged. I hope it wasn`t :/

    People who take risks like that deserve punishment. Yeah they don`t give a poo about their own lives so they think its fun but they wont think its fun when they are in the hospital crying for their mommies or even worse, dead. Not to mention the other peoples lives inside that train. Jerks.

    ^^I think it was stunt and done on purpose too. The camera placement and angle was too perfect. If it was a camera to monitor violators, it would have been placed to more easily catch the license plate.

    Still, it was a ballsy stunt.

    Why call it a near miss? It WAS a miss. A near miss implies that it was almost a miss, but not quite.

    Anyway, the driver was a total moron. Too bad the engine didn`t die at the last second.

    BlueJack,
    If you had a ghost car, the TRAIN would pass right through you too. And if only the car is ghost. Then your gonna be the one to hit the barrier.

    I don`t think it was faked. They didn`t go through the bar. It`s the reason they stopped. They stopped to readjust their car`s angle so that they could go around the bar on the other side. They were aimed for it if they didn`t turn like that. All I was thinking the whole time though was "Holy poo!"
