This surveillance video captured in Wakefield, Massachusetts this week shows a commuter train barreling into a pickup that reportedly drove through the lowering gates.
The 70 year old pickup truck driver survived, but police are still investigating to determine whether he put himself in the path of the train deliberately or if he had a medical issue and lost control.
Witnesses heard impact, then loud screech of truck being dragged and the cloud of smoke. Driver was conscious. pic.twitter.com/nQyBjdPQDC
