There's one for R-V.net! Glad she's alright, but I don't understand how you can be THAT confused unless its snowing or even raining heavily.

Just saw this on the news. I'm glad that she wasn't injured.

Here are my thoughts:

- Unfamiliar with the area
- It was night
- Private crossing with the stop sign and gates (kinda odd)
- She was probably lost, thought she was turning right onto a street, and we got to see the result

On the outset, it looks like she's a moron, but she had some factors working against her. Either way, it's dumb to turn without verifying where you're turning...

On one of my LE lists I belong to, it stated she had a medical condition that was acting up. I don't remember if it were diabities or what exactly it was.

Watch the clock timer in the upper left corner of the screen and you'll see the TV report removed some of the video to reduce the time between the woman leaving the tracks and the train arriving at the crossing.

The following link shows the deletion more clearly. You can draw your own conclusions as to whether this was to increase the dramatic effect or remove (expensive) air time from the story.

Select the following link and then enter "train" in "find video." You may have to click the thumbnail of teh video once or twice to get through the ads.

They editted the clip because there's no way they could talk about it for the entire length of the original version. Also, news is supposed to move fast. Under some circumstances, a producer might decide to air the whole thing, but in this case where the woman luckily survived, there was no need to. Maybe on Sheriff Burnell's show they will not only air the whole thing, they'll slow it down and reair it a few times.

Have you ever noticed that no matter what police dept. in the country Sheriff Burnell is with, the helocopter "voice" always has the same voice and "close calls" on that show would be a normal everyday routine pass in the fast lane any other time? "OH MY GOSH, HE ALMOST SIDE SWIPED THAT VAN!!!" with 8 feet between them.

Also if you listen carefully, you'll notice that the tires squeeling and crash sounds are the same on all kinds of different scenes.
