AUSTIN (KXAN) — A couple says they were sitting at a train track Sunday — on their way from West Monroe, La., to Memphis — when they were firsthand witnesses to a dramatic train wreck with an 18-wheeler. The crash sent fuel spewing into the street and had smoke billowing from the wreckage.
They couple says they noticed a tractor-trailer with a crane on it, stuck on the tracks. The railroad crossing lights came on, and the approaching train’s horn could be heard blaring. That’s when they grabbed the camera, catching the very moment the train smashed into the 18-wheeler.
