Skin Of Her Teeth: Train Nearly Kills Oblivious Bicyclist (Video)

| by Jonathan Wolfe

An unidentified woman was literally inches from death today when she almost crossed a train track on her bicycle right as a train came speeding by.

The incident happened near Waterbeach, Endland -- an area about 65 miles north of London. The woman’s brush with death was caught on film, in which the woman is seen ignoring all crossing barriers and slamming on her brakes just milliseconds before colliding with the train.

The woman has not been identified by police. Police say they released the video to the public in order to warn residents about the potential dangers of level train crossings, which are common throughout England.

Here’s the video:
