Imagine derailing a train because you didn’t want to wait a few minutes
With those busses it would only be a few seconds, like less than five
Yeah, light rails are never more than like four cars.
This guy rails
no you don’t get it! the driver is way more important than everyone else and everything around them, duh
Why didn't the trains yield, dammit?!
Because after the impact, the damage can be buffed out easily
They should get a replaced by self driving taxis lyft driver to fix it
In Harry Potter they do, so why not here?
Judging by the post accident pictures, several pieces of the train did yield, as well as the entire frame of the car.
Because he didn't have his right of way hazards on.
If he had those on, the trains would have been at fault.
Today, I was almost sideswiped by a lorry running a red light, the impact wouldve most surely killed my wife sitting next to me. And it really made me think. The thought of what could have been. If I survived, would I want to continue going on without her? It bothered me all fucking day. I can try and drive as safely as possible but in that situation there's not much I couldve done to protect her.
And now I see THIS asshole who doesn't seem to give one shit about the safety of his passenger. Fucking humans, I swear.
This shit fucking terrifies me, it’s why I’m glad I live in a city where I don’t have to drive. I’d rather die than lose her.
Yeah. For me, if it's time to go, then I guess it's time to go. But if something happened to her ...
Even then, you can’t really die because then you’d be leaving her alone in the world. I used to do a bunch of reckless shit (dangerous climbing, etc..) but now she tells me “You have no fucking business dying while I’m still breathing” so it’s made me act a lot safer... still.
I guess you don’t realize how dangerous the world is until you love someone.
Truth. I used to have dark thoughts about ending this shit, but it's funny how someone great coming in your life can change all that. Now all I wanna do is grow old with her.
Obviously. If he wasn't, he'd be riding public transportation like some commoner.
Had it happen in February near me. This video is exactly what happened. The car had 3 guys in it and afterwards the car was literally obliterated. They couldn't even tell the color of the car. One train actually derailed and went into the station platform, other one was burning. It was an absolute nightmare of a mess for the people on the trains. It happened on long island at like 6pm on a weeknight so you can only imagine the delays.
Poor train. There are only 4 trains like that in the whole city
Oh yeah, I used to work at the school bus yard not far from there on W John St. Part of my bus route was right near that intersection at School Street where that happened. Jacked up traffic for days afterwards
He would be crushed by two trains. Car would look like mince...
bUt ThE tRaIn ShOuLdVe StOpPeD.
But yeah, people think they can get through or that trams and buses have the stopping distances of a car (they don't).
To be fair, he cleared the train that was filming. He probably didn't see the train behind him, gunned it and turned into a car sandwich.
The driver didn’t see the flashing lights, the giant trains, or hear the bells. They had no way of knowing a train was coming!
I know you meant this sarcastically but that is exactly what they claim in court, that and the transit company didn’t do enough to warn them. Happened with a woman who ignored all warnings and lost her leg. She caused the accident, she caused her injury, but she sued and got millions.
In Tacoma, we had a woman walk around the warning barricades and get killed by a train she didn't hear because she had headphones on, and she didn't see because she didn't bother to look both ways. Her family sued the city for not doing more to stop her from getting hit.
The driver was focussing on the tram coming from his left (and though it was a stupid manoeuvre, he would have beat it over the crossing). He didn't even see the tram on his right. There is a name for focussing on one thing and not seeing other dangers - can't remember what it's called, but pilots are known to suffer from this, being the cause of many accidents.
And here is a great explanation, from a fighter pilot, about why drivers don't see things that are in their field of vision:
Technical term is target fixation but I've always heard it referred to as tunnel vision.
Trains, as in the plural. That driver seriously
And now imagine doing it with two at the same time.
Wouldn't even be minutes, probably not even 10 seconds!
few seconds even, are these not just transit trains? 6-10 cars lmao
I think that he was listening to the music in the video and that made him feel invincible.
I bet he sued the company afterwards for damages to his car, stating how he’s gonna run that train company into the ground, do you know who I am, blah blah blah.
I bet he also lost that lawsuit hard.
They don’t lose the lawsuits, not often.
Imagine that new insurance premium
Not just one, two.
Spring in St. Petersburg, Russia. The driver and passengers of the tram was not traumatized.
Don’t you mean tram-atised!!
Edit: ooh! Thank you for the silver. My first!
Looks like these comments have really de-railed
Why do Russians drive like they want to die?
Russia is a giant country and most of them use dashcams because of corrupt police.
If almost everyone in the states had a dashcam we would see much more crazy footage from there as well.
This is so true - must have crazy unfilmed incidents in the rest of the world too.
How we saying: It's not a tram, will go around!
According to a Russian guy I know, “quality of life in Russia... not so good that we worry about these things.”
Same thing for depressed people when they don't bother looking at traffic when they cross the street
If you lived in Russia, wouldn't you?
An accident like that must end into removal of license forever and pay all repair costs.
It’s in Russia so he is probably dead.
Trains were going slow enough and were small trams, probably got some minor injuries but I doubt hes dead
Not dead from the accident... The insurance company had him executed.
Driver fine. He take long vacation in Siberia.
I really really hope his insurance has a clause of reckless driving, so he doesn't get his car repaired and/or totaled with reimbursement.
Good lord he is a fucking idiot, is so infuriating to watch this video.
Russia is 2 types of insurance:
"OSAGO" - driver liability insurance
"KASKO" - property insurance (car) and other damages.
Osago is a must. For now it covers ~$6000 for each person/car in any cases except drunk driving. However, it does not cover other damages and lost profits. And I see ~ day of downtime for trams. This is a very lot of money.
And if this idiot does not have Kasko - nobody pays for his "bucket". And i'm sure he has no Kasko because it costs >$1500 per year
Could you answer me a question I have about the Osago insurance? If we are in a hypothetical situation where I hit 3 other cars, would I get $6000 total or $6000 for each car I hit? Im guessing it is the first case.
Earlier - $4000 total, last 2 year - $6000 for each car or/and people. It's cheap insurance, by default ≈$50-150 per year, but this may be the reason to never get into the car after you get into this hypothetical situation because it's a mandatory insurance.
It is designed to protect innocent people from idiots without income and property.
Edit: The insurance agency (if it sells kasko) must sell this insurance to all drivers (cannot refuse) and consider the price using the single formula.
Edit 2: if you drink before accident, your agency pays the money anyway, but takes the money from you through the court if they succeed (may have nothing to take away)
Edit 3: If you do not have osago, then in the future each camera on your way will send a $ 20 fine, and for now police evacuate such car without the right to take them back before paying the fine, pay tow (and parking ($5-$15 per hour)) and buying osago (This can be done for more than a month if the car is at a special parking and older 3 year for legal reasons).
Edit 4: You will receive an amount of up to $6000, for example, if the damage is $100, you will receive $100, if $10000 - $6000, if 2x$10000 - $12000, if $100+$10000 - $6100. The culprit pays the rest in court.
I really really hope his insurance has a clause of reckless driving, so he doesn't get his car repaired and/or totaled with reimbursement.
Even if his Insurance had to pay for everything, can you imagine how high his rates would be I mean he totaled a car AND derailed TWO trains
The fuck is this music
When it started I was kinda expecting "Welcome to Hydraulic Press Channel!"
Edit: And here we go!
OVER THE EDGE!
It's what the tram driver listens to so he can de-stress.
Not sure but I’m definitely jammin to it
how stupid can you be?
A lot of the podcasts and even radio stations I listen to have recently had a lot of train safety advertisements. It seems like a useless advertisement because there's no way I'm going to try to beat a train. These idiots are obviously still out there.
I think the statistics the advertisement uses include suicides by train.
People who are stupid enough to get into accidents with trains are probably not smart enough to listen to an ad about train safety and change their ways. But I guess we have to try.
The thing that gets me is that this guy would have had to stay on the scene for hours, taken to hospital etc. So he added on 10+ hours of shit to his day all because he couldn't wait an extra 2 minutes.
Not even, more like an extra 4 seconds
Wow. I've never seen the footage from a train camera in these cases. Those idiots are lucky this wasn't high speed.
Even trams need dash cams nowadays
"I turn now! Good luck everybody else!"
Why do idiots like these always survive unhurt? And often the ones those idiots hit, die or are gravely injured...
Weeds don't die
Many die but most likely they often survive if they react by moving a little out of the way. Could also be more populated areas likely involve stations which means trains moving slower over the crossing.
Are you saying you want to see people get hurt?
Just because someone is an idiot doesn't mean they deserve death or injury.
But if they cause someone else's death or injury with their stupidity?
What about it? Should they also die? No.
Should they go to jail? Yes.
But if the stupid people die, then there’s less stupid people.
There will always be stupid people.
Hey man, I get that it's cool, as a teenager, to be edgy and whatnot, but here in the real world as an adult, we don't want people to die over what's likely to be a simple mistake. Being an idiot driver doesn't make someone a bad person... and even being a bad person doesn't mean they're deserving of death.
Yeah Reddit has really latched onto 'kill all the people I don't like' recently
They don't. Lots of idiots die from their own stupidity, millions every year.
I thought OP was talking about the car that went by in the beginning of the video.
You can't be late if you're dead
Seriously with the death metal?
In behalf of the folks over at /r/metal, that's not death metal.
And yeah, us metalheads know no one cares, but we have a compulsion to correct people anyway.
The song is Skullcrusher by Biohazard, a (subjectively awful) hardcore punk/metal fusion band
Edit: read the comments below me, proved my point metalheads can't resist correcting people, even though I had already done it lol
People tend to believe that anything that sounds mildly “hardcore” is death metal lmao
New World Disorder was a solid album in my humble opinion. Saw them live once, though, and I couldn't tell you if there was a difference between any of the 20 songs they played.
It's probably quite fitting. I mean, death by metal, death metal.
Can people really not tell the difference between death metal and hardcore?
Let's do a quick Google search of "Death Metal Band Names" and see who comes up in the list.
Necrophagist/Decapitated/Obituary/Cattle Decap, etc etc.
I mean, yeah. Duh.
Ehhh... old Opeth, sure. Why not.
LMAO. Ok. Whatever you say, Google. (Not going to shit on Korn, who I grew up with, but Death Metal they are not.)
Korn? Lmao. I'll call consider them on the harder side of rock, but not death metal. Are they even considered metal?
Well, they were defined as "Nu Metal" along with the rest of the stuff from the 90's, but some of their stuff is sorta/kinda heavy. I definitely wouldn't call the vocals "Death Metal," but that's just Jon Davis for you.
Let's just say that I've heard Korn on the radio way more often than Cattle Decapitation.
it has loud guitars, drums, and the guy is yelling, must be death metal
Only major difference I see is in vocals tbh, but that's probably my untrained ear for these things. Most people (including me) simply don't care enough to figure out the intricacies of music genres they don't like and never listen to.
Basically the same.
Death metal is a catch all term for anything like those bands. Like jello means all gelatin snacks. Like it or not
Coming from someone who used to be deep in the genre wars, I find this type of discussion is typically used to Lord over people with your superior taste. 'I only listen to bands so underground they haven't released an EP yet'
Like it or not, normal people don't care about the myriad different subgenres of metal.
Lmao it's not even death metal, everyone always thinks stuff that sounds hardcore is death metal
I can only tolerate metal when it's live and I can feel the energy. This video is not chaotic enough for biohazard.
That's what you get for Russian through life.
... but not enough.
He needed 3x more hurry to make it.
In a hurry to what? Death?
You can be the best driver, but that doesn't matter because, its the other idiots on the road.
Fresh coat of paint and a new car and it’s good to go
Oooh, hope that buffs out.
I mean, no matter which way the driver looked a train was heading straight towards them. How oblivious were they?
Produced by dfbvyjvfjbchnvgjhghh
It’s clearly the trains fault. He didn’t even try to swerve out of the way. /s
I mean, this is fucking moronic even for this sub's standards!!!!
That should buff out with Hyundai’s 10 year 100,000 mile warranty.
I guess you could say that the driver's plan have been...derailed. 🕶️
Why the music tho
He watched too much Fast and Furious
He didn’t see the train coming from behind
I do legitimately hope he's held responsible for derailing a fucking train..
is he fucking blind? there was no way he had the time to pass...so fucking lucky to be alive, hope he stops being an idiot in a car cause he is not going to be so lucky next time
I appreciated the music
Was he wiping something with a tissue?
"Let me just wipe this dirt away. Ahh there we go"
more hardcore/metal over webms!
people like this should pay for the both trains repair
All i can think is "squosh"
Aweonao nivel sandwich.
Not to be pedantic but I'm fairly certain that is a she.
What a fucking idiot. They deserved whatever they got. Injuries, bills, everything.
Guess that's the only way to get a train ran on her
This is why I don’t speed even if I’m late, at the end of the day I’d rather be late then have my car wrecked or get a ticket which would make me even more late. Accept your fate, be late, not dead.
I wish he would have died tbh. People like that don’t need to alive. Just wait until he’s to impatient to go the speed limit through a school zone.
Where was he going? Heaven? If you’re in a big enough hurry, thats where you can end up. Lol
Ow. I had my headphones at podcast volume and now I just lost 10% of my hearing.
That's just natural selection right there lol
Like a glove......
A tram jam!
were there any casualties?
Everyday humanity steers further away from progression.
That was a Honda logo.
Vin diesel, is that you?
Im so sorry, i didnt saw those fucking giant trains comming!
In Russia, trams can break cars on rails
How you get an idiot driver off the streets.
That car's either a beast, or those trams are weak.
It'll buff out...
cars bring the worst in people
mighty as a russian
It'll buff out.
Anyone else wish the driver didnt make it? I mean to the hospital. Alive.
My band and I just released a new single, will you put it in your next video?
At first I though it was some fancy video game lol
