Today morning (02/18),  rumo narrow gsuge grain train hit a truck  thst didn't stop in a red light in a crossing level in Orlândia, PR , South of Brazil. The truck was destroyed and one locomotive hit a house. No one was serious injuried in spite of the big damaged yo the train, the truck and the house.

Thanks for sharing.

Trucker driver blasts through "absolute stop" traffic light.

Any chance that the truck lost its brakes? Otherwise, this is an example of grade crossing problems we see all around the world.

I am glad that apparently no one was injured.

No problem with the brakes of the trucks. Many truck drivers do not like to stop for trains here. We have many accidents like that every year.

Man, he ran both a stop sign and a red light.  Doggone shame the engines did not hit the truck tractor with that lousy driver.

Glad no one was hurt. What is the blue Rumo car that was right behind the locomotives? I first thought it was a box car but it also looked like a bulkhead flat with a trarp.
Sounds like one of the locomotives was still running. Like the old Timex watch ads "Takes a licking and keeps on ticking!"

That was a track scanning car built from an old "all door" car. 

5 - 6) Rumo track scanning car.

Wow, that sure was a nasty derailment. Glad there were no fatalities. Shame on that truck driver!
