A ute driver in northwest Victoria has been captured on camera dicing with death as he narrowly misses a speeding freight train.
Train driver Adam Hollins filmed the incident, seen in the video above, near Swan Hill on Wednesday.
Footage shows Hollins repeatedly sounding the alarm with his horn as the seemingly oblivious driver speeds toward the tracks.
In an unbelievable streak of luck, the driver misses the train by mere centimetres.
The freight vehicle, which was transporting grain, was travelling at about 40km/h at the time.
“It was pretty close,” Hollins told 7NEWS.
“I don’t think he had any idea ... he just kept driving.”
Hollins said he believed it was only a matter of time before someone was killed at the crossing.
“He didn’t even tap the brakes at all, so he’s probably completely oblivious,” he said.
“If we had have hit him, he wouldn’t have even known what hit him.”
