Crash at Level Crossing Leaves Man in Coma (Video)

A motorist was left in a coma after a train collided with his car at a level crossing in the Moscow region.

The video indicates that the level crossing's barrier were not working and cars continued crossing right up until the crash took place.

The train continued to push the car along the tracks, coming to a stop at the platform at Scherbinka, 8-kilometers from the Moscow Ring Road.

Rescue workers struggled to dislodge the vehicle from the tracks.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
