A CSX freight train slammed into a tractor trailer stuck on the tracks about 15 miles northeast of Indianapolis, according to footage of the accident obtained by WISH-TV from a local bystander.
The Pendleton/Falls Creek Township Fire Department said in a Facebook post that the collision occurred Friday evening. The train pushed the cab down the track a couple hundred yards from the point of impact and both the truck and the train caught fire. Crews were able to extinguish the fire and no one was injured because the driver got out of the truck before the impact.
Witnesses told local news outlets that road construction had caused traffic and that construction workers tried to move the truck off the tracks before the train arrived.
