Truck Hit By Oncoming Train [Video]


Footage has surfaced of a FedEx truck being halted upon snowy train tacks while driving through a storm in Utah.

Unexpectedly, an oncoming double decker train smashed into the truck, splitting it in half.

The train struck the trailer part of the truck, thus, sending packages and boxes into the air. The cab part of the truck was not hit, leaving the driver and passenger unscathed.

According to authorities, the railroad crossing arms malfunctioned, and investigators are currently looking into why the arms did not activate for the train’s incoming arrival.

The exceptional footage, obtained by USA Today, can be viewed below from their Twitter account:
