not only that, D kosdrosky would have been in the path of the car if it had been hit.
That car made it across with only 7 seconds to spare! It was over the track at 1:17 and 2009 was over that same spot of road at 1:24! I'm breathless!
At 1:15 you can hear that car really accelerate before flying over that crossing. What a knucklehead! It seems that some people are still confused about what to do when those red lights start flashing and bells ring. Then this guy then stops between the gate and track! [Insert expletive here.] If there was a collision it almost certainly would have been fatal: 2009 was really hauling! I would hate if one of our NWP railfans became a witness to such a tragedy. In this case we would have had two videos of the carnage.
The car was caught on the wrong side of the gate, and from D kosdroky's video, it didn't look like the car would clear.
Nice grab, Mike! Did that car cross the tracks illegally or did it come from the side street? Couldn't quite tell. Thanks for sharing!
