Horrific footage of a train derailing after crashing through a truck

Not for sensitive viewers

This is a video shows a truck getting stuck on the train tracks while trying to cross. The truck could not move and inevitably the train came along and crashed right through the truck, derailing two engines and 17 cars of the 87-car train.

The couple who witnessed the horrible ordeal commented, ”We were sitting at a train track today on our way from West Monroe, LA to Memphis when we notice a tractor trailer with a crane stuck on the train tracks. Then the train crossing lights came on and I grabbed the camera as the train smashed into the crane. We are getting a lot of comments about how we should have called 911 instead of filming. There was no need as we were sitting right in front of the police station. Believe me, they heard the crash and came running out. By the time we were able to go around the train and get to the other side, the police were over there and the driver of the truck was there as well. He is fine but we understand that the train engineers were in pretty bad shape. The thoughts and prayers of David’s Garden Seeds And Products are with them. We pray that God will heal them. At the time of the crash, we were in shock and I had no idea what had come out of my mouth until I played the video back….you just don’t know how you will react to tragedy that unfolds right before your eyes until it happens. I did not shoot this with a Smart Phone. I shot it with a Flip camera.”
