Train hits truck on tracks in Minnesota

A dash camera caught the moment of impact.

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.
