    I work on the railroad where this happened and not only must we feel for the driver of the truck, the train crew has to deal with this also

    ALways stop at a crossing, ALWAYS, no matter what. You never know if something doesn’t work

  6. John says:

    I feel much worse for the train crew on board the train than I do for the guy in the truck. He had a choice, even if his truck broke down he could have gotten out and gotten to safety. The crew on board the train was completely helpless and had to witness the whole thing.

  7. Wm. says:

    Ever consider the remote possibility that the driver of the truck was having a heart attack & was rendered helpless to avoid his eventual unfortunate fate???
