UK cops seek cyclist nearly killed by train

02 October 2013, 16:47

London - British transport police are trying to locate a woman who was nearly killed when she ignored barriers and started to enter a railroad crossing seconds before a train zoomed by.

Startling video released by police on Wednesday show the woman slamming on her brakes at the last instant to avoid being hit by the fast-moving train. The train driver also used emergency brakes.

The incident happened near Waterbeach, 105km north of London.

Police said the woman risked her life by ignoring warning lights at the crossing.

More than 100 trains per day use the crossing, often travelling at 75 mph.

Police said that releasing the video may make the public more aware of the dangers posed by level train crossings, which are common throughout England.
