Almost got nailed by a RR crossing gate last nitejrm

Someone just couldnt wait for the gate to extend vertically after the long frieght train passed. So the guy hits it and bends it back till it breaks. The gate being full of energy from being bent spins straight up until it loses its energy and then falls sideways landing about 30' away from me as i was riding accross the RR tracks. That would have hurt..
That would have hurt, but made for a great addition to...PdxMark

a "freak bike injuries" thread here on RBR someday. It would have been nice to be able to pass on his license plate number to the police out of consideration for his thoughful driving.
