I wish those stupid trains would keep to their tracks, and not go Mad Max on the highway, and smash into unsuspecting cars.

Sounds a bit, "Stupid ass plan to kill himself and his wife and become internet famous" what with the livestreaming and soulful looks and all.

Well, in all fairness, trains can be pretty stealthy.  It's hard to figure out where they might show up and you never hear them coming.

He was the passenger Subby, but I guess you could say he was being a bit distracting to his wife who was driving.

Pop star, indeed.

Crazy to me that the driver was caught on video looking for a train, but didn't see it.

/as mentioned, the live-stream guy was the passenger

It's only millions of pounds of steel and cargo moving at a reasonable speed. Easy to miss.

Thats pretty much what this dude said, and is asking for $80,000.

Trains are stealthy predators, just like fire trucks.

Yeah, this a wasn't distracted driving death. It was a woman driving death.

That'd be more plausible if it wasn't his wife who was the one driving, which it was.

"The lane in which he turned from had no gate down and he heard no warning system."

i.e. driving around the lowered gate on the wrong farking side of the road.

I don't think he married her for her driving skills.

It looks like they weren't struck by a locomotive but by a paired DMU unit. It looks to be a DH2. Best speed is 100kph. Who knows what less it was outside of Ploiesti.

What was the stupid game he was playing for which death was his prize, justifiably?

Before you answer, you should probably know that if you RTFA you'll find out he wasn't the one driving. He was just a passenger.

Where I'm from, we don't call it duckface, we call it anus face.


Also, that dude looked high AF.  So at least he died happy.

I don't care how high you are, when you scream like that you aren't happy.

So right-hand drive car and from his reaction the train came the left side. He had just enough time to see it coming and shiat his pants.

The picture of the gent looks mirrored based on the characters on his shirt. He's actually looking to the vehicle's right. In one of the article's stills it shows heavy right-side damage to the car and that side is set beside the front of the DMU.

Camera angle doesn't help.... but maybe he was getting a handjob at the time of impact?

Took me a while to track down the location. Long Beach Avenue and 55th St in L.A. Looking on Google Maps this guy turned left into oncoming traffic. If the train hadn't hit him he'd have caused a head-on collision with someone because he obviously wasn't looking or paying attention at all. I also don't believe the part about no warning sounds. If even one of the bells was functional at either of the crossing arms then he'd hear it. Those things are farking loud. And they have flashing lights facing him before he turned left. And cars were stopped at the other stop signs waiting for the train to pass.

When I read this, I thought you meant he was suing.  But it's a go fund me which is a little better I guess.  That he's only got $20 since March is telling.  And the image of the impact makes it very clear that he was going around the arms as BigNumber12 said above.

drjekel_mrhyde: The woman driver stereotype is real?


No it is just an old sexist joke with no basis in...

/Googles real quick

...huh. Well, arguably... Looks like men get in more accidents, but also drive a lot more than women do. Men drive about 40% more miles per year. So men cause more accidents by total count, but women are more likely to get in to them and only are lower in total numbers because they drive almost half as much as men. Which all tracks with my own personal experience. My wife insists I drive whenever we get in the car together, and she's been in a couple accidents since we've been together whereas the only accident I've been in was when a deer literally ran full speed in to the side of my car which was stationary, and in park, on the side of the road - hardly anything my driving ability would have caused.

The consensus around my car loving LA friends is that women get into a lot more minor accidents (scrapes, fender benders, etc.) and men cause more serious accidents (total car loss, serious injury, death) so it evens out I guess?

The fact that he was traveling parallel to the tracks also shows that he's a farking idiot because there is no way in hell he did NOT see the train moving at high speed literally right next to him. The LA Metro trains don't have bells: they have white noise alarms that sound like a cyborg goose getting roasted alive - theres no mistaking it for any other sound other than a speeding train.

I'll make a wild guess from the reversed writing on his top that it was a left hand drive car.

Well, that woman I'm in love with, Lord, she's Memphis bound
Well, leavin' here, I'm just a raggedy hobo
Lord, I'm leaving here, I'm just a raggedy hobo
Well, that woman I'm in love with, Lord, she's got to go
Well, goodbye pretty mama, get yourself a money man
Goodbye, pretty mama, Lord, get yourself a money man
You take that midnight train to Memphis
Lord, leave me if you can
Oh, take that midnight train to Memphis
Lord, leave me if you can
Oh, take that train, baby
