Just moments later, the railroad crossing gate’s arms got here down on the semi-truck, entrapping it over the tracks.

You can watch video of the crash below, shared on Facebook by consumer Caleb Brandon. Warning: The crash video could also be disturbing for some.

Many witnessed the scene from afar, when a train touring at a excessive velocity neared the semi-truck.

Moments later, the train is seen plowing by means of the semi-truck at a excessive rate of velocity, hanging the wind turbine blade and rolling the semi-truck on its aspect. Eventually, the semi-truck and its load have been pressured off of the tracks because the train continued ahead.

It’s unknown the extent of accidents or what result in the crash right now.

KSAT has reached out to Luling Police Department and has not but heard again.
