Another good reason people under 21 shouldn't be driving. They dont know how to stop. look. and listen.. he probably thought he could beat the train.

The kid is lucky. Usually the train is going 30-35 in that area, but there is a speed restriction to the north of that intersection because of some soft tracks further north.

That intersection is messed up anyways. It's a 3 way stop with grade crossing to boot. They should put crossing arms there before something more serious happens.
Yeah yeah

How could you not see a train coming at 15 mph? I bet you Mary Jane told him he could make it.

Ok..there is no crossing bar/gate that comes down at this spot and I just said someone was going to be seriously injured.

Also when you are at the stoplight in Brookfield to enter the highway, way too many people are in the wrong lanes and go straight when they are supposed to turn onto th highway...AND way too many people on the inside lane turn all the way into the outerlane...where are the Brookfield police???????

Its all about the mass. Small item hits large item. Of course the train had no damage.

"probally" you are too much of a bigoted moron to even spell "probably" correctly. the ignorance level on these posts have certainly escalated (that means to increase)

"The ignorance level on these posts have certainly escalated"

It's actually has, as you are referring to the ignorance level (singular) not the posts (plural)
You probably shouldn't insult spelling until you work on your own grammar.
