Sarah-Jane Murphy

A truck driver got the fright of his life while driving his long vehicle across a level crossing in the city of Frydek Mistek in the Czech Republic.

As he made a left turn and crossed the train tracks, a passenger train travelling at high speed smashed into the side of his trailer.

The force of the impact separated the cabin of the truck from its load, with the train physically shoving the vehicle's load down the tracks until it managed to come to a stop.

The Rail Safety Inspection association in the Czech Republic said that the driver of the truck suffered "light injuries" and reported that nobody in the train was hurt in the incident.

The BBC reports that the driver jumped flashing red lines warning not to proceed.
