Car Crash at Railroad Crossing


What are people thinking about? Or are they thinking?

Let's see: Snow-slick road. Curving roadway. Railroad crossing.

Ouch! This crash on Lily Pond Road at the Metra rail grade crossing looks like it left this vehicle in a rather dangerous position, should the next Metra train for Chicago come by.

If you come upon such an accident, the phone number for Metra is on the utility box near the crossing. The number may not be on the side of the box facing the crossing, so walk around it. If a train-vehicle crash is imminent, move up toward the approaching train, so that you won't be hit by debris.

What's it look like to you? Maybe about 20-25MPH speed at impact?

Thanks to the reader who emailed the picture to me! You are appreciated!
