It looks as though the train driver had quite an obstructed view of the track and couldn't stop in time.

Add to that the fact that the driver was busy posting his nth "saart nas b" comment of the day. Priorities.

What's with hanging out/ sleeping/ doing drunk people stuff on train tracks here?

A lot of these aren't accidents, they are suicides.

To be fair I can't imagine stopping a 100+ tonne train in time to not run over some drunk dude who just appeared in the headlights is very easily accomplished
Keep your money in your socks and fuck, and get massaged, with your socks on

Is that a thai cop? Pointing is much more common over there.

Yes in my old place back in Lancashire three of my young school friends chose that way (one in his pyjamas with his favorite teddy bear alongside him). Tragic.
