VIDEO: Trucker has scary close call when railroad crossing signal fails

A trucker has to make a last second save when a train appears without warning. YouTube user Justin Payne shared the video on October 21. Payne writes, “This is a dash cam video of me coming to a set of tracks at Lac La Biche Alberta. Note the rail way lights are not working and train suddendly appeared from behind the tree line. I was driving a semi pulling a set of Super-Bs.

I post this video in hopes of raising awareness when coming to a set of tracks. Please be extra vigilant when it come to trains and their crossings. We take for granted that the light will warn us of approaching trains. In this case not so true. Date of accident May 23/18 Bought the dashcam couple weeks prior to incedent not realizing I had sound off while recording. Song was edited in after incident.”
