VIDEO: There’s a reason why trucks aren’t allowed at this railroad crossing


A Georgia woman captured stunning footage of the moment a stuck semi truck was obliterated by a train.

The video was captured in Acworth, Georgia, on April 2, according to 11 Alive. Police say that the truck driver was able to get out before the train struck his rig. Trucks are not allowed to use the railroad crossing where the crash occurred. Acworth police later cited the driver for failure to obey a traffic control device and for attempting to use a rail crossing without sufficient clearance.

One person on the train suffered minor injuries during the incident.
