Grade Crossing Accident in Gomadingen, Baden-Württemburg
Author: SOO6617

Fortunately no children were onboard the DMU when a large truck ran a road crossing in Gomadingen on Friday January 15th, 2021.
If it weren't for Covid-19 the train would have been full of children when the accident happened. As it happens only 3 people on the
train were injured, the Zugfuhrer(Conductor) seriously, plus the truck driver. Both the truck and single car DMU wound up on their sides.
The crossing has lights but no gates and is on a lightly used branchline. This news story has some photos;

So I guess idiot truck drivers are not just an American thing.

There are idiot drivers (not just truck drivers) all around the world.
