After gathering himself, he said in an online posting of the video, he turned off the camera and ran as fast as he could to help the men in the truck. He expected to find only bodies, but instead saw that both men were fine.
"They are lucky," said Wellington Police Chief Lee Berry. "One second later and they would have been wrapped around the train."
There are no crossing arms at the intersection, but there are signs, flashing lights and a bell, Berry said. He did not want to speculate on why the Price River Water Improvement District truck crossed in front of the train, but Berry said that in his own experience, people become complacent around stop signs and train tracks.
The train conductors were fine as well. The train engine received some minor damage from the crash, and at least one crossing sign was destroyed.
Berry did not know what the cost of repairing the damage would be for the railroad company.
Police are still investigating the crash.
