The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is Patrick King. He gets the award for the following.
Patrick King, 65, was waiting for a stopped CSX train to clear the track. He quickly grew impatient and drove his 2006 Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck around the closed crossing gates and traveled 150 feet up the tracks. He noticed a southbound TriRail train heading in his direction, got nervous and jumped out of his vehicle. The slow moving train inched closer to the stopped truck and bumped it causing moderate damage – the train was not damaged and there were no injuries.
Brilliant! Driving down the railroad tracks into the path of a train. For an incredible act of dumb driving, Patrick King is today's Knucklehead of the day.
