I don't remember where I heard this, but statistically, a car is hit by a train every five hours in America(?).

Actually I heard it is 5 minutes, although 5 hours sounds more realistic.

UPDATE: I heard on another forum that the reason for the collision was that a freight had cleared in the other direction, and cars immediately started going around. The sign says 2 TRACKS Idiot! These nuts "followed the leader" around the crossing and arrived just in time.
