Watch: train nearly kills a Honda Accord

This is the worst bit of parking… in the world

Big barriers with flashy red lights on next to railway tracks are there for a reason, Americans - don't park inbetween them. As in really don't. Because trains are big and crushy. And cars are small and crushable.

This driver - who can count themselves among the luckiest humans alive - narrowly avoided getting pasted along the tracks after avoiding our advice. Luckily, thanks to some Stig-like train control skills, his Honda Accord (and possibly life) were saved. 

Now watch. Through your fingers...

UPDATE: yep, you're all correct, it's a Honda Accord. Apologies for that...

 

Now share it...
