I watched similar action on Corsica.We were approaching traffic lights,the car nearest the lights stopped the one following did'nt too busy watching the plane!!Fortunately I was able to watch all the action.
In the days of steam the express trains used to put a scoop down to collect water in a similar way.Not so dramatic though!!
Regards Robert.
