A 36-year-old bus driver collided with a train at a crossing in Bojanówka (Lublin Voivodeship). Why did he ignore the stop sign? He explained to the police that he travels this road very often and has never seen a train at this time.
It was Saturday, a few minutes after 6 a.m., when at a railway crossing in Bojanówka in the Wohyń commune, a 36-year-old resident of the Czemierniki commune did not give way to an oncoming train. There was a collision. Fortunately, it only ended with fear and a damaged car.
They suspended his driving license
“The drivers were sober, which was confirmed by the breathalyzer test,” said Assistant Commissioner Piotr Mucha from the District Police Headquarters in Radzyń Podlaski in a press release.
He added that the 36-year-old’s driving license was suspended – for a gross violation of road traffic regulations.
Surprising explanation from the driver
“In a conversation with the police, the man explained that he travels this road very often and that no train has ever passed at this time. Now the court will decide the fate of the 36-year-old,” he notes.
He also reminds that a railway crossing is one of the most dangerous places and when approaching it, you should always exercise “particular caution, increased concentration and attention.”
