    Nah, I don't think so on this occasion. They are just reporting an incident, sort of.

    Re: Man injured as train hits tractor at level crossing

    All of this intrigue over some dum bass driving into a crossing when a train is approaching?

    My sole interest in the event is how the tractor came to be where it oughtn't.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I suspect the tractor driver weaved onto the crossing via the offset barriers, as he had done many times before, only this time his luck ran out.
