VIDEO: Another Cyclist Nearly Hit by Train at the Same Level Crossing

By Monica Buck

The CCTV footage of the first incident has done the rounds on social media and you might think that it would deter other risk-takers. At least for a while. Well, no.


“Again, someone narrowly avoids death, fortunately the driver slows as soon as possible and gives the cyclist just those extra inches,” Dutch rail organisation ProRail commented on the new video.

This time, the rider approaches the crossing at night. After navigating a set of bollards, he pedals onto the tracks despite the clearly visible oncoming train and its nearing lights. He speeds up, only just avoids the train and then stops to catch his breath. Probably thanking the driver for their quick reaction.

Again, be safe out there. Please.
