A driver who was ‘in a hurry’ had a miraculous escape after running a red light on a level crossing and being smashed into by a train.
The pickup truck was seen approaching the crossing as the passenger train comes hurtling towards it in Samut Sakorn on Monday morning.
CCTV shows the moment the locomotive clatters into the vehicle before pushing it along the tracks in front of horrified witnesses.
Police arrived at the scene to investigate and found a pickup farther down the tracks flung into a grass verge.
Miraculously, the driver Saharat Hussakul, 37, emerged from the wreckage and told police he was ”in a hurry” and did not see the train.
