Video: Driver hit by slowest train ever after making world's worst turn




It's usually the parallel park or hill starts that cause most drivers problems. Left-hand turns? Not so much.

But this driver got himself into a real pickle when he took a turn on a busy road - only to find himself in a collision with a slow-moving tram that he could see coming a mile away.

The footage was caught by another driver's dash-cam, who was waiting patiently for the car in front to make its move.

The driver indicates, moves to go left, but then sits waiting for an inordinately long time on tram tracks, while the vehicle moves towards him.

He looks less than impressed after the crash, making angry gestures at the train driver, who, in fairness, didn't appear to have much choice but to plough into the car.
