Miracle Cyclist Crashes Into High-Speed Train AND SURVIVES

The 26-year-old man somehow escaped with only minor injuries.

A cyclist plowed head-on into a high-speed train and somehow survived the near-deadly collision.

The cyclist was riding in the southern Poland town of Opole when video shows him weaving past a lowered barrier and directly into the path of a Pendolino locomotive.

A second angle shows the cyclist bouncing off the locomotive — easily failing any Superman test — before landing like a rag doll on the ground nearby.

Incredibly, despite him appearing lifeless on the ground, the 26-year-old escaped with minor injuries, 7 News reported.

The video, taken back on Nov. 5, was released last week by Polish railway operator Polskie Koleje Panstwoweto to serve as a "lesson in how not to cross the tracks."

The collision reportedly caused the train to be delayed by 40 minutes and resulted in a number of broken bars on a radiator grill.

The cyclist was fined for ignoring the red light and blood tests determined that he was sober at the time of the crash, the Telegraph reported.
