This dash camera video from the North Salt Lake Police Department shows a FrontRunner train tearing through a FedEx truck. A malfunction meant that no warning lights were flashing and the crossing arms were raised at the time of the crash, according to the Utah Transit Authority.

Update: FEDEX after at first denying it had admitted to parcels being on this truck. FEDEX is DENYING CLAIMS. FEDEX is refusing to reimburse it's customers for damaged or completely lost shipments.

Good job by the officer driving this cruiser at keeping his eyes open. Most of us would have followed that first truck over the tracks and ended up as mince.

NEVER trust something mechanical, it will, eventually, fail

Aren't the lights supposed to flash and the stop arms come down BEFORE the train comes through?
Adam Watkins

How do ppl capture things like this on camera ?? Like what the hell were you recording ? You just randomly decided to have your camera running at the time of a train crash?

At 17 seconds into the video you can see a signal maintainer's pickup truck parked off the road to the right with his emergency flashers on, to the right of his pickup about 30 feet you can see the signal box , it holds all the electronics to the gates, it's size is about 8 feet tall and about five feet square, he was there obviously because they were having trouble with the gates, he was either inside his truck or inside the signal box working on the electronics when this happened, the gates going down after the impact indicates to me he was inside the signal box working on the electronics .

what happen with railway crossing?

isn't that just regular fedex package handling.
Katrina Rucker
Oh sorry FX truck, but these railroad crossings were a bit lazy that day.

Whoa that was tough to watch! Thank God the driver is okay!
My order was in that truck.

The fault seems to lie with the signalman on the scene. He never should have turned off the lights and raised the arms without first contacting the dispatcher (and the schedule) to determine if any trains were approaching and then putting flagmen in place .

If you have eyes- these are professional drivers- who are trained to looked both ways through ALL intersections and rail crossings- Both drivers should be fired its obvious that neither bothered to look. The train has only 1 lane and its expected that a NON professional driver get hit by a train for being oblivious to their surroundings but NEVER is it accepted of semi drivers- what are the excuses? they didnt see a big ass train ? Well they could have killed several ppl by not doing their job in a commercial vehicle. I would fire both fedex drivers- and charge them both with reckless driving. who cares if its snowing- if you cant look, dont drive. be the bobble head you were trained to be or get off the roads! There are hundreds of rail crossings across america without rail arms or sirens- so thats a lame cop out when YOUR job is driving. Not crying like a baby due to your laziness- They put ppl's lives at risk. ANY trucker other than these to bozos will tell you. Truckers make mistakes- heres a vid of 2 making the same error. not doing what they get paid to do. fire them both!

the train crashed into the truck at 0:20 with the gates up but at 0:50 the crossing activated and the gates went down?

the front runner train crashed into the truck with the gates up at 0:25 and at 0:50 the railroad crossing activated and the gates went down?

What I notice is that arms are not down and signal lights are not flashing. I see what others mean. The arms come down, and signal lights come on, after the accident. What is more, the other semi was just seconds away from being "Creamed" too - just missed being hit by the train rocketing through. This show why we cannot always trust the signals to be working Thus us what we call "defensive driving," or always being in the defensive when we drive I guess.

JeyJoxx

Steven Zephycrs
imagine check your delivery status and see:"unfortunately, your package has been hit by a train"
Nathaniel Armstrong
So that's where my packages went...
hifijohn
I guess its an ex-fedex truck now!

It wasn't until the oncoming SUV went over the tracks that the warning lights went on and the guards came down. It's really lucky that it was a truck trailer and not anything else that was hit. Glad no one got hurt. Feeling kind of sorry for FedEx having to sort out what was damaged and what wasn't. It's a good thing there was a policeman and dash cam video to witness the accident so that the driver doesn't get blamed for what happened.

I hope my package wasn't in that truck.
Mershawn Harris
