Luckily, no one on the overpass appears to be driving a convertible - Click above to watch the video after the jump

What happens when you combine a flooded underpass, a traffic-jammed overpass, and a passenger train in Buenos Aires, Argentina? You get a real-life Six Flags water attraction. Those people standing near the train tracks? They need towels. Hope everyone up on the road above had their windows closed. Follow the jump to watch.

      I know that tons of steel will overcome hydroplaning, but I would of still winced if I were the engineer. Still must of been a heck of a jolt for the train.

        I thought it was a runaway Toyota...

        @Kotse

        I thought it was a Dodge disintegrating.

        @feeboo: observant in the grammar, unobservant in the video.

        The pedestrians and vehicles were waiting to cross. Notice the guy in the reflective jacket? They knew it was coming. And they knew *what* was coming.

        Your jokes are bombs.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I had the same thought. If you wanted to run the risk of derailing a train, this would seem like a good way to go.

        @ cool_ozzyfromkalush:

        No, that was a Toyota, too.

        @Andre Neves: Nah, still funny.

        Tony: You wrote would of and must of. What you meant was would have and must have. Would of is would've turned into would of, which doesn't make any sense.

        Anyone else notice the flock of pedestrians right near the end? Pretty lucky they missed that.

      Why did nobody even think about running? They just stood there and took it...I would have been out of there the second I heard the train horn.

        @Neil: "several feet"? They'd be up to their necks in water. More like several inches - the standing water is calf to knee high.

        That's what she said.
        • 4 Years Ago
        They are standing in several feet of floodwater. I'm guessing they figured they were already wet.

        Humorously, it is evident they decided there was no need to run because they had umbrellas.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Fullscreen it. You can see someone in the middle of the screen fold up their umbrella.
