WATCH: Driver frantically waves at conductor moments before train plows through truck 

Published:

A driver did his best to warn a train conductor in the moments before it crashed into his stuck truck in Georgia on Friday. 

The accident happened in Palmetto, Georgia at 1:30 p.m. on September 2nd at Johnston Circle. 

In the video, a motorist who appears to have been trying to help the stuck trucker jogs away from the incoming impact as the trucker frantically waves at the train in hopes the conductor can avoid a collision. Unfortunately, the conductor is unable to stop, and the trucker steps back from his rig with his hands over his ears, awaiting the crash. 

The impact completely separated the truck from the trailer and carried the cab a ways down the tracks before coming to a stop. No one was hurt in the incident, but the truck was severely damaged, reported WSB TV 2.
