Man had a narrow escape as a speeding train crushed his biketext_fields
A man in a viral video helplessly watched as a speeding train crushed his motorbike in Uttar Pradesh's Etawah.
At least he could console himself for running away from the track, moments before the train rushed by at a railway crossing in Ramnagar area of the city last week.
The footage of the narrow escape showed a biker trying to drag his vehicle off the track.
The bike seemingly got stuck on the track just as he noticed the Jharkhand Swarna Jayanti Express approaching at high speed.
The man abandoned the motorbike and ran for his life as the train rattled past him.
The train rammed into the motorbike and rushed by as the man watched it helplessly.
The incident took place when there were pedestrians and bikers waiting on the track for another train to pass through the adjacent tracks.
As they saw the train that was to crush the motorbike coming, they all moved back as the man was trying in vain to extricate his bike from the track.
The mangled parts of the bike were later found near the tracks.
More than losing his bike, he is reportedly facing action for trying to cross the tracks when crossing was closed.
