FAKE! You see a car come down the road and then just disappear at 0.18 . This means that two shots were taken then overlapped together. Who films train X-ings anyways?

" "if that had been in the US I would have bet it was a blonde chatting on her cellphone about the new shoes she just bought."

And why does it have to be a blonde?"

It just does.

Why on Earth did the idiot stop halfway?! Did the crappy Hybrid batteries run out?

And the `staged feeling` might be down to the fact that someone just so happened to randomly be filming a railway crossing just as something crazy happened.

An 18 wheeler couldn`t stop in that distance. What makes you think a train, with even lower profile wheels and at least 10 times the mass, could do better?

As far as the engineer doing it on purpose....if he slowed down, do you think it would have mattered? MY money is on a "closed coffin" even at half that speed.

Im afraid that this is FAKE! check out the drop bar when the car drives through it, Does it break... no, So unless the bars are hollograms these days, its 2 clips spliced together.
Sorry to disapoint!

Yeah, one of my friends knows someone who used to be a conductor, and he hit someone on the tracks... Was never the same about that, and it`s been years since it happened (he`s way past retired now), and he just can`t forget it or move past it.

I remember today i was riding the bus, and i saw next to us a girl probably about 23 or so, painting her nails and on the cell phone while driving. Not only that, her entire dashboard, with the speedometer, gas, etc, was covered in pictures of her and her friends at parties.

if i was an engineer, and people were doing it for fun, i would hit them too. people who have no value on their own lives get no sympathy from me, and they shouldn`t from anyone else. people who drive drunk and die, people who light themselves on fire on a dare, people who try their hardest to miss a train for fun... those are the people that will one day run our country

kudos, usa.

Why does the bar go only halfway across the road?

It should be the entire width of the road.

The engineer on the train was a jerk as well. He did nothing to try and avoid the car....just barreled straight on through as if nothing was up.

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!"

"I could do that to if I had a ghost car. It passes right through the bar."
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.

AFTERSHOCK,
TAKE OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK. NO ONE LIKES IT WHEN THEY`RE BEING E-SCREAMED AT.

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.

They`re starting to install alchohol-level test in cars (or so i`ve heard), though maybe we should start with IQ tests.

It`s a fact that pressure in the air alongside trains can rip cars apart.

Meh, that`s so fake. The pressure from the train would have ripped off the rear of the car. Besides, no one in the world is dumb enough to do that.

Moron in the driver seat. Prius or not. I`ve seen macho men in big pick-em-up trucks pull crap like that.

^^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.

Do people not realize that he did it on purpose? It`s called train-dodging, and I saw this video on ebaumsworld yesterday.

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.

^^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 :/

It kind of looked like he didn`t notice that the barrier was down or that a train was coming somehow. He stopped, went forward, stopped, then when he noticed the train he TOOK off.

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
