BNSF 5094 at Wilmington

This train missed hitting somebody at the crossing by literally two seconds. It was moving every bit of 70 MPH (track speed). This all happened right before my eyes.
He was in a car. The crossing at this location is unprotected. All it has is a crossbuck and a yield sign. When he was approaching, I nodded towards the train trying to warn the guy, but he didn't respond. He stopped on the tracks. Then when he saw the train coming, he put it in reverse and quickly backed off the tracks. This was the closest call I've ever seen while train watching.
