Impatient lorry driver topples over after clipping edge of train


A lorry driver has been caught on camera hitting a crane that was on-board a train, because he was too impatient to let it fully pass at a level crossing.

The incident was captured on dash cam in the Irkutsk area of Russia. The driver of the dash cam vehicle can be seen waiting patiently at a level crossing as a train passes by.

On the other side of the crossing a truck can be seen approaching. As the train continues to move past the waiting vehicles, the lorry driver spots a gap he thinks he can squeeze under.

However, the object - a crane being carried by the train – is much lower than expected and the lorry clips the edge of it.

This causes the crane to pull the truck it onto its side before it topples over completely.
