Posted by TikTok user @jk0502_311, take a look at this video to see what happens.


"I can't believe how clean cut that was," says user @mk7r02100.

"He saved the cargo so that's a plus," writes commenter @clawman86.

Viewer of the video @valeriethompson98 notices this point as well, saying, "At least he didn't loose his load."

"Train engine will be stopping in the next town," predicts @roospike.

"He literally should have been smart and disconnected the trailer when the train was coming," says @kblake81. "Then truck and trailer would have been good."

"Curious what happened to the truck to cause him to not be able to move it," writes @nanamonkey64. "So glad he was okay."

"The train was going entirely too fast for going through a town," surmises @mudlogger2018.

Video watcher @fajja59 makes an observation: "Well, he doesn't have to worry about what was wrong with the truck," he remarks.
