The crew of a tractor-trailer that was stopped on a railroad crossing can be seen just barely escaping the truck before a freight train cuts through it.

Here's how the guy who recorded the accident tells it:

Turned the corner to approach the crossing and found the tractor-trailer stopped on the tracks with the crossing guard down and the lights flashing.

The driver of the truck and a passenger were in the cab of the tractor up until a couple of seconds before the train hit. A third person was already out of the truck.

The train hit the trailer which must have cut the brake lines to the tractor which rolled off the road after impact. The driver emerged from the other side of the tractor once the train had stopped. No one, to my knowledge, was hurt.
