Truck vs. Train

This is what happens when a truck takes on a train.

This video shows a truck driver in Czech Republic passing a rail crossing even though it was unsafe to do so and the warning lights were going off. The second set of gates fell and the truck became trapped on the tracks.

The train hits the truck with such force, destroying the back end of the truck completely, approaching the truck at the speed of 99 mph, but the train driver did pull the emergency brake which reduced the speed down to 88 mph.

Sadly, three passengers died and another seventeen were injured. The train driver was severely injured and lost his leg.

The truck driver was completely unharmed but was detained by the police. He is to face up to ten years in prison for public endangerment.
