Freight Train Collides With Car Stalled on Railway Line

A man and his father had a lucky escape after a freight train in Quanzhou, Fujian collided with their car after it stalled on the tracks. 37-year-old Mr. Lin from Hui’an was taking his father to see a doctor when they came to an unexpected halt whilst crossing a section of track that has no barriers and relies on reflectors to alert drivers. Having spotted a train just 100 meters away, Mr. Lin rushed to drag his father from the back seat after two unsuccessful attempts at restarting the vehicle. Netizens were impressed with the relative lack of damage, praising locally manufactured cars.

    Guess he didn’t know you can put the thing in neutral and push, or didn’t have the time. Hard to know without film. Gonna need to get that front end realigned :D

      Oh man, I can think of better walks than walking on rail road cross ties or the rock they used for the bed. To each their own, I guess.

    “Netizens were impressed with the relative lack of damage, praising locally manufactured cars.” This is like a G train, no wonder it did not do any damage, they go like 30 KPH, it simply pushed the car.
