According to reports, the 24-year-old tanker driver did not hear the train blasting the warning signal before he crossed the tracks because he was wearing headphones, and he drove straight into the oncoming train. The man was seriously injured and taken to Takeo hospital.

I don't think it was he didn't hear the train, it was just natural driving, the always never look when going through intersections so why look at a crossing
I'm standing up, so I must be straight
What's a poor man do when the blues keep following him around.
