Why does that matter? UK unsecured crossings, have a sign saying.... Stop.... look... listen, clearly the bus driver did none of that.

Another avoidable accident, looks like it was caused by a bus driver. Hells teeth trains are bloody great BIG things. R.I.P. to the poor victims.

Sad, so sad. But they never learn....

From that video it’s clear that the bus didn’t get stuck. Driver wasn’t paying attention at all. 

I suppose brake failure was not an option in this instance..😔

A train crashed into a bus in Chachoengsao province on Sunday morning, reportedly killing 20 bus passengers, while 15 injured people were rushed to the local hospital.

 

The 60 bus passengers from Samut Prakarn province were heading to join a religious ceremony in Chachoengsao.

 

According to eyewitness accounts, the bus driver had stopped at the railway crossing for a train but he reportedly did not notice the alarm for another train coming from the other direction.

 

Locals said that the alarm station was abandoned and the spot blocked the sight of oncoming trains.

 

The bus was entirely destroyed while police were investigating the cause of the accident. Rescue teams have rushed to the site.

That would appear to be a different accident. The picture in this story shows a passenger train, that is a freight train.

That's just another train passing after the accident happened.

I presume this photo shows the road level in the crossing...

It was a freight train. The original article says so. The picture must have been taken later when a passenger train was stopped there.

If you look at the CCTV of the accident, it's a long freight train...

The crossing seems to be next to a station, so likely other trains with passengers pass, and stop, there.
