SUV Gets Stuck On Train Tracks And Pays The Ultimate Price

Whenever we see a car either stuck or stalled anywhere near a railroad crossing, we can’t help but imagine the worst.

In most cases, if we have to show it to you, it’s likely because the worst happened, which means that the vehicle met with an unfortunate end at the hands of a locomotive, with the conductor unable to stop or slow down in time.

This particular incident took place in Chonburi, Thailand, and involved the driver of an SUV who according to the video’s description, was suspected of being drunk. The good news is that nobody was in the car at the moment of impact.

As you can see, the train doesn’t need a lot of momentum in order to blast a regular-sized vehicle (like an SUV) out of its way. The sheer mass of that locomotive makes it easy. Eventually, the train did stop, but not before the car was already on its side, after rolling over.

It was also a bit unsettling to see people just standing around with their phones out ready to film the impact, instead of turning on their flashlights and waving desperately to the conductor – just in case something could have been done, like attempting to stop the train sooner.

  • Bash

    That was awful, at least no one got hurt.

  • Bo Hanan

    Maybe someone needed to be hurt for such a stupid stunt. That vehicle was not on a travel path. And what about the damage to the train and the danger the operator could have been in. And don’t even get me started on Asian drivers. I also wish the bikes had been destroyed too.

    I thought SUV’s were designed to go over rocks and stuff. Who knew an SUV could be stopped by a tiny incline and some railroad tracks? 😒😒😒

    • Jay

      It was in an accident before that.

      • Bill Nguyen

        Ah that explains a lot. No wonder no one was trying to move the thing hehe
