Dude only JUST realized at the last minute that a train was barreling down on his tractor-trailer

When your truck is stopped on the tracks, you gotta stay frosty. Don't sleep on it:

An oblivious trucker was just feet away from death when he stopped his 18-wheeler on a railroad crossing in front of a speeding train, which crashed into the truck, turning the white big rig into a pile of debris.

The wreck occurred around 10:30 Wednesday morning in the village of Versailles, Ohio when the semi-truck stopped on the West St crossing of the CSX railway as the safety barrier was lowering, the Village of Versailles Ohio EMS said in a statement on Facebook.

For real: Was this guy deaf? Did he not hear the horn blaring as it neared his vehicle?

All of us watching that:

The dude was so casual with it!

Thankfully the driver was okay, and apparently everyone on the train was as well. Versailles reported both a fuel spill from the truck as well as a damaged engine on the train.

When it comes to railroad crossings, remember the old maxim: Hit the brake, don't get pancaked!
