"Why doesn't he just drive through the barrier?!" That's the question you and everyone else who's seen this video is asking. A semi truck driver pulls onto the train tracks just as the barriers come down. He's apparently too polite or too stupid to just drive through and break the railings, but he is smart enough to pull forward just enough to save his life. The train hits the trailer with full force sending the cab in a spin, but fortunately the driver is able to walk away.
