WATCH: Driver realizes at the last second she’s too close to truck stuck on train tracks 

Published:

A truck driver narrowly avoids getting pummeled by her own truck as a train strikes it in this video.   

The video was filmed in Union City, Georgia on some train tracks along Watson Street on Monday, June 5th. 

The video shows a woman, apparently the truck driver, standing right next to the truck cab as a train approaches the truck from the opposite direction. Someone across the street yells at the driver to watch out and she begins running right at the last second, just as the train smashes into the truck stuck on the tracks. 

The woman disappears from view for a second but can later be seen still running. No injuries were reported, but she sure came close to a tragic end. 

The truck was hauling bags of cat litter at the time of the incident, which created clouds of dust as the train moved through the area. 

Watch the video of the near-miss below.
