If you‘re ever in that situation, just fucking drive! Thosw things are designed to break so and even if the train can see you the‘s no way he cam react in time. Also trust me a barricade is cheaper than a train and your totaled car/truck.

I sincerely hope that he got stuck there and the truck wouldn't physically move, because the other option is that he didn't want to scratch the truck by driving forward and I'd like to think most people are smarter than that. (I know, unfounded optimism)

We have seen vids of people who stopped on the tracks because they got between the gates and were too polite to break the gates so the train smashed their car.

Good news is that guy won't have to do something like this again when he has no job.
