A truck driver in Atwater, Calif. came face-to-face with a real nightmare this week when his rig got stuck on railroad tracks just as a train came barreling down the tracks.

Thankfully, the driver got out of his cab before impact, which was caught on video. No injuries were reported. The Merced Sun-Star reports that the truck got stuck on a center divider as the driver attempted to make a right hand turn.
