The incident occurred in one of the cities in Illinois. Quick response and attentiveness of the driver on the road helped him avoid a terrible accident.
Driving a car was a member of the American police Peter Stanglewicz. Approaching the railway crossing, he noticed rushing towards the train and managed to turn sharply to the left. This helped to avoid collision. Automatic barriers and traffic lights at the intersection did not work.
Record of the video recorder came into the net. The footage shows how the car of the police officer drove into the middle of the oncoming lane, and the train swept past just a meter away from the machine.
