A 10,000-ton freight train has smashed into a limousine stuck on the tracks at a level crossing as it carried a group of teenagers celebrating a birthday.
Incredibly nobody was hurt in the incident, which was recorded by the limo driver after he and his passengers fled the beached vehicle in Indiana in the US last week.
The video shows the locomotive in the distance, horn blasting loudly as it bears down on the car.
“It’s not gonna stop, it’s not gonna stop,” exclaims the driver as an elderly man tries in vain to flag the train driver with his red cap.
Realising all is lost, the man steps back to record the moment of impact.
The freight train crashes into the white stretch limo, scooping it up and effortlessly swiping it along the track in a show of brute force.
The limo driver then runs down the track to where the train has finally come to a halt and asks the train driver: “Did you see me”
“I sure did,” replies the engineer. “I got 10,000 ton behind me though.”
The track crossing was closed for several hours.
