Man jumps from van seconds before train hits (video)


A man who got his van stuck on a railway track didn't appear to be in too much of a rush to get out of the way - despite the fact a high speed train was hurtling towards him.

He got out of his vehicle and was trying to get his bag out of the back seat when a police officer ran over to hurry him along.

The man got stuck on the train line after trying to beat the closing barriers.
