BALLAN, Australia-- In Australia, a train driver has pleaded with people to stay a safe distance away from railway tracks after he narrowly missed a motorcyclist forced to abandon his bike as it was cleaned up by a fast-moving train.

Dramatic footage of the trail-bike rider bailing out at the last second was captured from the front of the train travelling nearly 100-miles per hour.

As the train zooms along the raised tracks, a group of trail-bike rider appears off in the distance crawling along the rails.

Within seconds, the locomotive is on top of them; one biker dropped his ride on the tracks as he bails into the bushes.
