VIDEO: Vehicle Parked Near Tracks Prevents Train from Passing

train blocked by carVIDEO: Wondering what all that train honking was around the area of 4th Street on Thursday night?

A Conrail train making its way through Lakewood – as it does each Thursday night – spent a few minutes stationed and honking after a vehicle parked too close to the tracks – or partially on the tracks – preventing the train from passing.

The vehicle’s owner came out several minutes later and moved the vehicle.

A cell phone video of the incident was recorded by a passerby. [TLS-50]

  1. oh good grief, really? I know parking during the day is horrible but AT NIGHT? Train should have taken out the car, if your not that smart to park correctly then you don’t deserve to have a vehicle.

  2. Same problem every week. We hear the train sounding its horn for a long time until people decide to move their illegal parked cars

  3. i live all the way south of the lake and i heard the train tooting its horn— it was for a long time.
    The train should have cut the car in half

  4. It was like a comedy show. Everyone outside in the snow watching till this guy decided to come move his car. Everyone knows that the train passes by every Thursday night. And even if u didn’t know that the train passes by, it’s common sense jot to park so close to the tracks.

  5. #9 “Make an announcement”? Since when does anyone need to be reminded to STAY OFF THE TRACKS.

    If someone is hit by a train, it is their own fault. They have no means of steering around trespassers.

    Why do people need to be notified when common sense is in order?

  6. I live in Howell and drive into Lakewood to work. I get so frustrated how many drivers I see on their phones and eatting stop signs and red lights. My goodness they do sell hands free devices people I have one,is it so hard to purchase one in the safety of others especially in llakewood . Really?!
