Amtrak Train Obliterates Semi-Truck Stuck on Tracks

It isn’t often that we post videos like this, but considering there were no fatalities and only four passengers mildly hurt by it, we made an exception. The collision is devistating.

According to Fox Business:

An Amtrak train collided with a semi-truck hauling multiple cars in Oklahoma on Friday, sending vehicles hurling into the air and injuring four passengers on board the train, authorities said.

The train was traveling from Fort Worth, Texas, to Oklahoma City when the crash happened around 7 p.m. near Thackerville in Love County, located near the Texas-Oklahoma border, FOX25 Oklahoma City reported.

A bystander recorded dramatic video of the collision, which appeared to show that the semi-truck had become stuck on the tracks at a train crossing. The video shows the gates had dropped on top of the semi before the oncoming train smashed through the truck, sending vehicles and debris soaring through the air. 

The Love County Fire Department shared photos from the scene showing several crushed vehicles and damage to the exterior and interior of the train.
