Security camera video from Poland captured the moment a driver’s poor decision to ignore a railway crossing signal nearly resulted in the death of her and the three other passengers in the vehicle.

Video shows the silver Volkswagen blow through a crossing in the city of Koszalin on Monday, causing the lowered safety barrier to snap off.

The car is seen stopping just after crossing the tracks at the same time a train speeds by.

The train actually clipped the vehicle’s rear, which could be seen on an alternative camera that showed damage to the car’s trunk.

After the train passed the stunned occupants could be seen getting out of the car to survey the damage.
