Every so often we see a video online of somebody getting stuck on a train track when a train is coming.

This time a freight train crashed into a truck carrying a wind turbine blade in Texas.

No one was injured in the accident.

A video captured by a bystander in another truck showed the 18-wheeler halting on the tracks.

Then the crossing guards drop.

Watch what happens in the video below. Lots of foul language is heard.

Keep watching this video to see that same wreck from another point of view.

You'll hear the gentleman shooting the video on his phone cussing. He knows what's about to happen.

That train has ZERO chance of stopping in time.

The truck pulling the blade tried to get out of the way and made it more than halfway before the train slammed into the blade.

The blade twisted and shattered.

The truck tipped over, breaking its frame across the road.

Once again NOBODY was hurt, thankfully.

The train finally comes to a stop, long after the wreck.

Here is a zoomed-in look of the same wreck.

A couple of years ago I posted a video of a pilot being pulled from his plane moments before a train cut it in half.

That video is below.


It was about 2 p.m. in Pacoima California. The plane was a single-engine Cessna 172.

With engine problems, the pilot needed to find a place to put it down.

When flying over a major city, there aren't many places. Too many buildings, cars, and power lines, to name just a few of the problems.

The pilot managed to land but wrecked his plan doing it.

Bad luck became worse as he skidded to a stop on top of train tracks.

Metrolink Antelope Valley line train tracks to be precise. The line has regular commuter trains.

According to local television station Fox 5 San Diego, rescue crews arrived at the scene and began pulling the injured pilot from the train.

All the while they knew another train was coming and there was nothing the engineer of the train could do to stop.

The good news is that the pilot will be okay and nobody on the train was hurt.

You'll see in the video the train just rips the plane apart as it ploughs through.

The pilot has cuts and bruises but will be okay.

As someone who owns a share in a 172, pardon me as I shed a tear for the plane.
