A freight train hit an 18-wheeler transporting cement materials that was stuck on the train tracks. The driver of the truck was not hurt in the accident but there was some damage to the freight train’s engine.
The truck had just backed over the train tracks when the lights went off and the arms came down blocking the truck’s way off the tracks. There was no way the freight train could have stopped in time to avoid hitting the truck.
Upon impact, concrete debris was sent flying. The driver was delivering construction supplies to a near-by construction site at the time. The driver was 72 years old.
