The train speed was so great that the truck had simply crushed like an empty cardboard box. The driver, having to appreciate the depth of the hopelessness of the situation, managed to jump out of the cab and run, so there were no casualties. In the accident and the resulting congestion of passengers two hours couldn’t release the train. The situation is aggravated by the fact that, according to witnesses, the truck was trying to move railroad tracks, “not on the move, but just using the rails.” The result was the complete destruction of the truck and its content – and it’s good that there were no casualties and the horrific environmental consequences, as in the recent train accident in Russia.
