[VIDEO] Commuter Train Crashes Into Truck

A commuter train collided with a truck trailer after it got caught on the over-head power-lines while moving over a level-crossing in Pinetown, South Africa.

According to emergency services, there were at least 40 people on the train, with only 10 sustaining injuries.

“Reports from the scene indicate that the trailer was left on the railway line by a truck driver who failed to cross the railway because the truck trailer got entangled in the overhead power lines.

The locomotive derailed after the crash.

“It’s believed that the truck driver detached the mechanical horse from the trailer and left the trailer across the railway line,” said Netcare 911 spokesperson, Athlenda Mathe.

“Moments later, a commuter train coming into the Moseley Park railway station collided with the stranded trailer, causing the locomotive to derail from the track,” Mathe said.

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.
