If Your Car Parts Are Late, This Dramatic Truck Vs Train Smash Genuinely Might Be Why!
Back in the day after cars and trains started crossing in each other’s path people realized that a signal is needed to make sure the much more fragile car doesn’t get in the path of the heavy steel made trains and get obliterated.
Since technology has gotten much more advanced since then, nearly all of the railroad crossings are fitted with an automatic gates and warning lights that tell us there is a train coming towards the crossing at dangerous speed.
So, what happens when that automated system fails? Well destruction and mayhem is one way to describe it, from what we can see on this video made by the dashcam of a police cruiser from the North Salt Lake Police Department a FrontRunner train slams into the trailer of a FedEx truck sending its guts flying across the tracks and the road.
Luckily, it’s the trailer that gets the beat down and the truck driver is fine and is not injured but the biggest fail in the video is probably the fact that about 20 seconds after the accident the warning lights started flashing and the gates came down, too slow.
