    If you don't want to get hit by a train....don't PARK on the train tracks.

    Incline -> Spinning Wheels = Bullshit.

    That’s what all country crossings are like. My parents and grandparents made damn sure we learned to slow right down and look for trains at every one. Living in the country he Wallis know this. There’s no way he didn’t see that train coming.

    I was going to say that it would take a fucking idiot to get hit by a train on one of those crossings, then I remembered Matt Hughes' book and it started to seem more plausible...

    He will never win this, but it's what you get when you torture animals. Shit of a human being.

    Several have mentioned but I will again anyway cause I am an idiot. I live about an hour from ole Matty. I grew up here. I would guess around here 99% of railroad crossings are exactly like pictured. People get hit (total guess) about every 2-5 years in this area. It does happen, but every time it does most folks figure the driver was trying to punch out. That is what Matt was most likely doing too, and his ego is too big to let him publicly state that. It does happen, but it's pretty stinking rare.
