As the train began to somewhat slow, it might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but as the video continues on, we begin to see that maybe he acted a little bit prematurely. You see, while trains are tough to get slowed down, it’s certainly not impossible and when the train that he was in did begin to slow down and the one in front of it also began to move, the collision was completely avoided. He probably felt slightly embarrassed after he bailed out and then the crash didn’t even happen in the first place and definitely will never be living this one down from his coworkers. Oh well, I guess that you could say that it’s better safe than sorry in a situation like this.
Check out the video down below that puts you on the scene of this potential collision that came incredibly close to happening but just missed by a hair. Thankfully, some quick maneuvering at the last minute saved lots of damage and potential injury from going down. Even though nothing actually did happen here, you would venture to think that somebody in the chain of workers is getting yelled at after this close of a call.
