Would be interesting to know the real details. What the driver could or couldn’t see, etc. While this looks more like an urban crossing, I have crossed rural crossings where you just couldn’t see more than 200 or 300 feet.

To a point, the story does oversell the image a bit (slow news day, perhaps?). While not "inches from the train", the bus did make it far enough ahead that its mirror brackets blocked the crossing gate.

On a side note, this goes to remind all vehicle drivers how important it is to not forget the obvious (forest for trees); after looking to find a crossing clear of trains, are the signals off and gates up as well?

the bus driver must be given disciplinary actions. he was almost near accident and for others not to imitate him.
