Video: Cyclist survives collision with train going 145kph

When the lights are red and the gate arms are down, stopping is a good idea at railroad crossings. But one young cyclist in Poland thought otherwise—and miraculously, he survived to tell the tale.

You would think that getting hit by a train going 145kph is a guaranteed death sentence, but in the official video of the accident, the cyclist appears to bounce off the front of the train and lands, relatively unscathed, in a nearby pile of rocks.
