Truck stuck on railway cut in half by train
This dramatic video shows the horrifying moment a lorry was sliced in two by a speeding train, seconds after the truck driver had escaped.
The incident happened at Kings Mountain, North Carolina, when a truck got stuck on the level crossing at exactly the wrong time - as a train hurtled towards it.
Luckily the driver of the lorry and a passenger managed to escape before his vehicle took the impact and despite the cotton cargo being spread everywhere, no-one was injured.
At least five police cars attended the scene and the intersection has been temporarily shut while a barrier is installed. The 'Absolutely No Truck Crossing' signs obviously weren't doing the job.
