IRON MOUNTAIN, Minnesota (WTVD) --The Minnesota Highway Patrol has released an officer's dash camera video of a train slamming into a truck on the tracks.
It happened last month in northern Minnesota.
Investigators said the truck was stopped for a routine inspection, but when the driver drove off afterwards, he went straight into the train's path - despite flashing lights and the blaring of the train horn.
The truck was dragged about a quarter mile down the tracks.
Amazingly, the truck driver just suffered a minor cut on his face. He was ticketed for failing to stop at a railroad crossing.
