This past Monday in Pendleton, IN, a truck was caught on a railroad crossing and things didn’t turn out too well for the truck.
You can see from the video that there was a concerted effort to get the truck off the tracks by emergency personnel and some other bystanders. Unfortunately, the train was coming down the track and was going too fast to stop. As you can see, the semi lost the battle.
Thankfully, the driver and everyone helping got out unscathed. The cab of the truck was destroyed, but shockingly the trailer was virtually untouched.
You can see it all happen below:
This is a mess that will probably take a bit to clean up:
