#OMG: Passenger train smashes into truck stuck on level crossing

Footage has emerged online of a collision between a passenger train and a truck last Thursday, September 3, in the town of Ruhrmond, in the province of Limburg in the south-east of the Netherlands. The video, made by an eyewitness, shows that the truck stopped at the railway crossing across the tracks. The truck driver jumped out of the cab and started waving his arms, trying to signal to the driver. Moments after that, the train demolished the heavy load, literally "cutting" it into two parts. According to local media, two passengers of the train were injured in the collision. According to the press service of the railway, as a result of the accident, the contact network and equipment of the crossing were damaged. Traffic on the site was not resumed until the following day.
