Ouch... heal fast!
Regarding parallel tracks, interestingly enough, I read this bit a few months back talking just about how troublesome they are:
The interesting bottom line? If you're stuck *between* tracks, at anything above a few mph it's physically impossible
to cross tracks at the requisite 45 degree angle. Obviously different than the OP's situation, but it's a good reminder just the same: cross as close to perpendicular as possible, or don't cross at all!
