Impatience

Staged??  The person driving the car just -so- happens to have an HD camera rolling in their car up to the crossing.

The train also just-so- happens to slow down just as the truck is driving underneath. How would the engineer even know that truck was going underneath?

Just the skeptic in me, funny video either way.

Since the scene is NOT in the U.S., in Europe, especially in Russia, the vast majority of vehicles have forward facing in-car video cameras, do to SOOOOOOOO many idiot drivers and accidents.

In 1981 we hit a taxi at a bell crossing near Fort Sill...the poor idiot pulled around a car stopped at the crossing, but he didn't make it any farther.  Impatience was coupled with alcohol in that instance.  We were setting out a boxcar of K rations, so we were moving slow.  Didn't kill him, but thoroughly ruined his wardrobe of that night.

I would doubt it was staged. Many Russians are known to drive around with dash-cams because evidently they're frequently accosted by crooked cops looking to make stops on unwary drivers, and then accept bribes to walk away. Remember the meteorite that hit a few years ago? The best videos of it came from dash-cams.

The latitude/longitude readings, for those wondering, indicate it's in Irkutsk, not far from Lake Baikal

 


In no particular order; Aviation (Pilot), Golf, Amateur Astronomy & Cycling (when it's nice out) and Trains (when it's not).

  I know a defector. He says it's the "wild wild west"; many rural folk buried thier money and valuables. The police shakedowns also include homes, and they bring shovels etc. so your always digging holes just so they have no clue where to begin. 

  You should try driving with one of these nuts in a ZR1.  (says the guy that has only had two people ever stay in the dune buggy vs walk back to camp
