Footage shows train smashing through truck on California railway line

A truck loaded with cars misjudged a level crossing in California.

The video shows the collision, after a truck got stuck on the slope behind the railway and was unable to move.

Onlookers tried to help move the truck off the railway line before the train arrived, but were unable to do so in time. All pedestrians, including the truck driver, were removed before the collision.

"Emergency number was called to signal oncoming train but they didn’t answer. As train was nearing we made sure to clear the area of any pedestrians including the driver."
