Miracle – Missouri Train Slams Into Tractor-Trailer, No Injuries
Some people believe in miracles while others don't. No matter which side you find yourself on, I believe you'll have to admit that it's remarkable that a train in Missouri slammed into a tractor-trailer yet there were no injuries reported.
I first saw KOMU in Columbia, Missouri report on this collision that was shared by the Rutledge, Missouri Fire Department. While it's not video of the collision itself, it does show the result.
If you can't see the status shared by the Rutledge Fire Department on Facebook, it reads "Today’s train vs semi crash in Gorin. No injuries reported. Roads will be closed for several hours while BNSF inspect the tracks."
This collision happened near South Gorin, Missouri. If you're not familiar with that area, it's a small town near the railroad in Scotland County.
To be sure, I checked another report by KRCG and they also reported that the truck driver and train crews were uninjured. Their story said that the driver got stuck on the tracks while transporting steel road tubes. He was able to get out of the truck before the collision. They say the driver of the truck was Ehsanullah Folad, 24, of Sunrise, Florida.
