Two tractor-trailers were recorded getting slammed by trains only days apart in Georgia.

The latest collision occurred Monday night in Acworth, about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta. In the first video below a train is shown plowing through a truck hauling a YRC trailer. The driver was able to get out of the rig prior to the collision. No injuries were reported, according to abcnews.com.

That crash follows Saturday’s train versus truck collision in Temple, about 40 miles southwest of Acworth near Interstate 20. A truck driver was filmed escaping from his Peterbilt just seconds before it was hit and carried like a rag doll down the tracks.

While the driver was okay, an employee on the train did receive minor injuries and was treated at a local hospital, according to abc13.com.
