VIDEO: Train plows through excavator, trailer after truck driver stops on tracks

In the video below, we get no indication as to why this truck driver stops with his the trailer sitting right atop a set of railroad tracks. He even backs up a little bit, giving the oncoming train a little better shot at the machine aboard.

What we do know is that he likely won’t ignore dropping turnstiles at a crossing again. That is, if he’s still employed.
