I love how some of the commenters on that u-tube link are saying it was because there was not a crossing arm. The driver didn't see a effing train across the road, what the hell makes anyone think he would see a striped 2x4??

That looked a little too deliberate to be an accident. Maybe the brakes were out and this was the only way the panicked driver could stop the car? There are better ways to stop a car, especially at such low speeds but the driver could have been too shocked to do anything else. Botched suicide attempt? Insurance fraud? Drunk/high? I'd rather it be any of those instead of "oh, I just didn't see the train coming across the road even though there are no obstructions and it is day."
