A town is amazed after seeing the remains of an almost unrecognizeable Land Rover that was hit by a train going over 50 mph. Fortunately their amazement is not at the destruction but at the fact that the two occupants lived through the railroad crossing accident. This train accident happened at a crossing with no gates, as we so often see. It is, however, rare that the occupants of such a railroad accident survive. Unfortunately, we cannot depend on luck for survival; lights and gates save lives – plain and simple.
