Dirt Bike Rider Inches Away From Getting Hit By Speeding Train

Remember that scene from Back to the Future where Marty barely managed to jump out of the way of a train at the end of the third movie? Yeah.

This incident happened in Australia near Melbourne where a so-called “rail trespasser” was apparently trying to move his bike from the tracks, yet once he realized he didn’t have time, he jumped out of the way.

While the camera angle might be a tiny bit misleading, you can still tell it was a close call, especially since the rider kind of stumbled out of the way instead of jumping properly.

We can only imagine what his friends must have thought when they saw the rapidly-approaching train. Still, we’re glad he managed to get out of the way in time because that train plowed right into the dirt bike – so stopping wasn’t an option, not at that speed.

Hopefully next time these guys will choose their offroading location more wisely, while also paying better attention to their surroundings.

    Please let me apologise on behalf of all intelligent Australians for this video. We are not all this dumb.

      I don’t think that we Americans are in the best position to judge the number of idiots in Australia or other countries. Not that we won’t, but we should probably keep a low profile for awhile.

  • ALWAYS TOUCH THE RAILS with your bare hands before you cross tracks.
    If there’s a train coming you’ll feel the vibrations.
