Minnesota State Patrol Releases Video of Train Hitting a Truck Near Virginia
The truck driver ignores the flashing lights and train horn and decides to try and make the crossing before the train arrives.
The truck and train collided in Mountain Iron at the intersection of Hwy 7 and 101. Both the train crew and truck driver appear to be OK after the collision.
This is a great reminder to be careful at train crossings, they aren't a place where you want to take any chances, especially on slippery, snow covered roads.
