In another episode of truck versus train: not only does the train win again, it accidentally hauls the big rig a quarter mile down the tracks before grinding to a stop.
Fortunately nobody appears to have been seriously hurt in this wreck captured in Mountain Iron, Minnesota by a State Trooper Sgt. Jeff Shay’s dashcam.
The cop immediately calls an ambulance and catches up with the train crew and truck driver, who seemed to have basically just had a brain fart and ignored the lit railroad crossings lights.
People on the train were unscathed, the 67-year-old local truck driver got away with a mild cut according to the Minnesota City Pages.
What did we learn? Train beats truck. Always. Watch out for those red lights, people!
Hat tip to Andrew!
