Remarks: UP powered CN has a very close call with a Mustang a split second before it hits the crossing at Fort Wayne Juction in Valparaiso, Indiana. It's too bad that the passenger in the vehicle had to be with this stupid driver on this day. What could be worth risking yours and your friends life to avoid a 2 minute wait for a train.

That was very stupid, he could've getting killed. To any teen who has watched this clip, do not try to beat a train.

Posted by Robert Bester on September 19, 2008

That was mighty close. Closer than the first one you captured on video. Good Video.

Looked like a bullet out of a gun.

They don't come much dumber than that. Definite candidate for a Darwin award.

You've gotta be kidding me; I wouldn't be surprised if the crew crapped their pants. I'm not sure, but to me this one seems closer than your last "Stupid Driver Video," but maybe it's the zoom you used in this one as opposed to the last video that's giving the slightest illusion. Either way, your videos, Kent, prove there are some real morons in our society. Kudos to you for capturing them on film and thank you so much for sharing. Regards, Jeff M.

Wow i believe thats the closest call ive ever seen

Posted by Appomattox Bob on September 22, 2008

I guess they used up all their lives on that one, also, isn't the same car parked across the track in the end of your scene.

Posted by Gary Hardings on September 23, 2008

Trouble is, your realy up against it from the start with dumb people like this. I bet most of them have never seen the consequences and very likely outcome from a few thousand tons of train hitting a car. Unless theres a realy hard hitting and graphic add campain, idiots like this will keep doing it and will most likely end up dead some day.

That idiot was lucky this train was rolling at 60mph or he would have been toast. God how I remember those pathetic sick horns on the thousands of UP engines I saw in the mid to late 1990's when they seemed to be on every train here in Indiana.

I have just witnessed this video for the first time today...this is also the same day that I have seen video of an accident with Amtrak around Detroit MI a week or so ago. In that incident, in case someone isn't up to par on news, was that five teenages were killed at this scene. The driver had numerous traffic citations and suspensions of his license but, yet, he still insisted on driving. That video was from a business camera nearby and even though you didn't actually see the impact there was still fear. The pictures from the newspaper website in that area were evidence enough. It's too bad we can't make every teen watch these videos to try to bring the point home - DO NOT TRY TO BEAT A TRAIN!!! IT MAY BE THE LAST ACT YOU PERFORM!!

See my previous comment on the NS video. Chilling footage. Another driver who should be submitted to repeated showings of "Last Clear Chance". (c. UPRR 1959)

Even when you tie you lose.

Posted by John marvig on October 30, 2009

That was extremely close. Never try to beat a train!

Posted by Derek Stewart on January 9, 2010

This is what makes me mad. People like this are putting a bad stereotype on us teens. No wonder people think we're stupid.

Posted by Fred M Pohl on May 6, 2010

Haven't these bozos ever heard of Operation Lifesaver ? These guys must have had big bowls of stupid for breakfast

Posted by Tom Vance(SJC) on October 29, 2010

Dumb and Dumber..................Sheeeeeesh.

Posted by TravelingMan on July 12, 2011

That is just plain old stupid! The teen completely disregarded the train coming and almost hitting the driver and passenger! That is just too close for comfort written all over!

Posted by Mike on February 3, 2012

I've been an engineer for 15 years now. After witnessing 50+ incidents such as this one, my motto is "Don't dump it unless you nail 'em!". I also saw a clever Burma Shave style slogan on a freight car which read "He saw the train and tried to duck it, kicked first the gas and then the bucket". These extremely close calls don't even make me yawn anymore. It's when I hit a car and put the train in emergency and then have to "take that walk" that makes me crap my pants. That is my nightmare that I have to deal with. The worst part is it's not idiots like the one in this video that become victims. It's innocent people who honestly didn't know, were confused, lost or are elderly. It's very rarely morons like this one that get hit and/or killled.

Posted by Jacktrain on August 1, 2012

Very, very, close call. The teen in this video is very stupid.

Posted by Owen on January 30, 2013

That driver was so stupid! I don't know why the guy in the car parked his car over in the grass.

Posted by WCK on February 22, 2013

Bloody heck that was horrible. That teen is such a jackal. I showed it to my mate Charlie, and Charlie was surprised. One bloody video.

Posted by maxwell on June 17, 2013

Not to be mean, but he deserved to get hit... That is just... uugghhhh...
