CHOWCHILLA, Calif. -- A tractor-trailer driver in Chowchilla, Calif., had a very close call on Sunday afternoon.

The truck stalled over the railroad tracks as a train carrying military equipment approached.

The whole thing was caught on amateur video by a witness.

According to reports, the driver of the truck abandoned the truck prior to the impact. The train was not damaged and continued on after a couple of hours.

The truck's load of trail mix was not as lucky and was scattered everywhere in the accident.

    The drivers fault entirely. I am a professional driver and it is known that you NEVER stop on tracks for ANY reason and it is ALWAYS avoidable!
