Brutally close call between a B Double truck and a freight train in the Goldfields

There is something about the camera angle here that makes the prospects of the rigs missing each other look highly unlikely.

Nevertheless, the two titans of the freight world don’t collide which is exceptionally good news for each party involved.

The collision was avoided thanks to the quick action of the train driver who was able to slam the brakes on the 1800m beast and reportedly missed the back of the road train by a bee’s dick.

Check out the footage below:

The company running the freight train (Aurizon) released the footage as a warning to all drivers about the important of not getting too bold around fail crossings.

No doubt there will be a few lotto tickets bought after that one.
