We don't know where this person had to be, but we hope it was important enough for them to risk their life. CCTV shows the reckless driver barely stopping in front of railroad gates before deciding to drive through them anyway. Before the driver could finish crossing the tracks, the oncoming train sliced the car in half. All we know is that the driver was injured, but the passengers on the train were safe.
