Video footage of a vehicle crashing through a railroad crossing barrier in northern Poland is making the rounds on the internet, and the one thing it proclaimed is that those in the car are alive only because of a miracle.

The incredible scene was captured by a security camera of the Polish state railway company last month, the U.K. Telegraph reported.

In the video, the driver of the vehicle plowed onto the tracks just after the barrier dropped.

Three passengers in the car left the vehicle just after the train passed by and walked away unscathed. Maybe they decided they’d rather live than die with a driver who makes decisions like that.
