Wellington - The driver of a water truck and passengers survived miraculously after their truck was hit and smashed to pieces by a train as the truck crossed a track in Wellington, Utah.
The Daily Mail reports that the incident which occurred on Friday, was caught on camera by James Wood, whose YouTube user name is Ramn8tr.
Wood posted the video to YouTube, saying that the incident was caught on camera while he was recording scenes of trains in motion for the education and entertainment of his four-year-old son, a big fan of Thomas the Tank Engine.
The video captures the moment the train crashed into the truck as it crossed the rails. It was too late for both the train and truck drivers to do anything to avert the crash.
Wood writes: "I turned away for a moment just before the collision to see how long the train was and heard what sounded like a stick of dynamite exploding, only to turn back to see the truck being mauled to death by the train."

According to dailypicksandflicks.com, there were two men in the 10-wheel semi-truck when the crash happened.
The train hit the truck in the rear end and it spun at the impact.
The witnesses were shocked for a moment but rushed to the assistance of the people in the truck. Everyone was relieved to find them unhurt.
Wood continues: "I was stunned for a moment because it was surreal to see this happening right before me. After I gathered myself, I turned off the camera and ran as fast as I could to help the men inside the truck. I was expecting to see bodies when I got there. Thank God the two men were okay - not even a scratch."
He adds: "That was one heck of a ride for them, and they are the luckiest men I know. I literally witnessed a miracle because despite the fact that the train destroyed the truck, the men inside were okay and they are alive and will be going home to their families tonight."
Wood said, "I spoke to the conductor on the train, and the two men aboard are okay as well. I'm so thankful that this didn't end as bad as it could have, and will keep these men, and their families, in my prayers tonight."
