NEW MEXICO – Officials in New Mexico have released a shocking new video in an effort to warn residents about the dangers of railroad tracks.

People and even pets are shown coming dangerously close to getting hit by a train.

New Mexico has a problem with people coming dangerously close to the tracks. Officials say people think they can outrun the train because it looks slow, but in many cases the trains are going up to 80 miles per hour.

Since July, rail officials in that state say six people have died after getting hit.
