The car doesn't slow down, just gets in the left hand lane and tries to make it across the crossing. The train hits it.

Go to the link above and then click on "Canton Car/Train Collision" for more detail. I had not seen this vantage point before.
I stand corrected. I only watched the one video that doesn't have the slow-mo, and didn't notice that.
