An oblivious driver goes straight through the train crossing

A Volkswagen Golf with four occupants nearly collided with a train in Poland after the driver broke through the barriers at a railroad crossing.

The barriers came down, but the VW sped through without even paying attention. The train hit the back of the car, but it didn’t cause any serious damage.

It’s hard not to cringe while watching the video as the four in the vehicle just barely avoided a disaster.

Both angles in the video show just how close the car was to being destroyed by the train.

The driver is very lucky he wasn’t hit, and the passengers in the car probably won’t let that person drive ever again.
