Sweet Jesus!

I thought stuff like this only happened in movies, but Good God:

According to the Sheriff’s Department, Leonard Fields, 55, of Appleton was driving eastbound on Y on his way to work. Fields drove around three road-closed signs before the railroad crossing. When attempting to cross, his vehicle got hung up on the tracks.

The conductor on a north-bound Canadian National train spotted Fields near the tracks and then saw the car on the tracks. The train’s engineer was able to stop the train before it hit the car.

So does anyone believe you when you call in late to work and use this as your "excuse?"

Moral of the story: do not ignore "Road Closed" signs.
