WATCH: Train Collides With Semi Hauling Concrete Beam

A messy accident involving three locomotives, ten railroad cars, and a semi-truck destroyed a concrete beam and closed roads in Tennessee this week.

According to WKRN, the accident happened when a train rammed into the side of an 18-wheeler hauling a massive concrete beam. The truck, which was transporting the 134 ft. long concrete beam for a reconstruction project, was reportedly stopped on the train tracks while waiting on a red light. Chattanooga Fire Department told WKRN that the trucker tried to move off the tracks when the crossing gates came down, but was unable to clear it in time.


The train slammed into the truck at full speed, completely destroying the concrete beam and causing diesel fuel to leak from the locomotives. Two train employees were injured in the wreck, but the trucker was unharmed.
