Driver Lucky to Be Alive When Train Hits His Truck in Heart-Stopping Near Miss

I always feel a certain amount of anxiety whenever I drive across train tracks solely due to fear of getting accidents such as this.

 

 

 

 

A driver was lucky to be alive when a FrontRunner train came tearing through his truck as it was crossing train tracks in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The truck was moving slowly across the tracks due to slippery road conditions when the train came smashing into its trailer, barely missing the truck head. According to the Utah Transit Authority, there was a malfunction that caused no warning lights to flash with the boom raised during the accident.
