Bungling motorcycle rider gets in a tangle after trying to duck under railway level crossing
A bungling motorcycle rider found himself in a tangle after trying to duck under a railway level crossing.
The impatient rider slowly moved forward while checking either sides of the railway so he could cross before the locomotive passed in Bangkok, Thailand on May 31.
However, the man did not notice that the metal barrier was lower than the height of his cargo which were caught when he rode through so he flipped over.
The other riders behind the man rushed to help pick up the fallen boxes while some helped to carry the scooter back to proper position.
Somnuek Runjamrus from the State Railway of Thailand said: ‘All vehicles have to stop at least five meters away from the railway. Violators will have to pay a fine of up to 500 baht when caught.’
The rider was not seriously hurt while his belongings that scattered on the road were not damaged. There were some light scratches on the scooter.
He was not fined as waited at the barrier to cross the railway after the incident.
