Here's video of what would have happened if the commuter train was being pulled not pushed.

KNBC-TV OXNARD, Calif. - A dramatic train accident was caught on tape by two separate cameras on Monday.

Gasper Medina told The Associated Press that he set up the cameras at the intersection to document the danger at the rail crossing.

Minutes after the cameras started rolling, Medina captured pictures of an Amtrak passenger train plowing through a semi-trailer loaded with strawberries.

The truck driver was not injured. However, a few train passengers were hurt.

The truck was carrying 155 one-gallon barrels of strawberries.

The impact caused the train to separate from the six cars it was pulling.


Medina said warning bells didn't give the truck driver enough time to move off the tracks.

Several gallons of diesel fuel spilled in the accident.
