A 15-year-old boy, heading home from a shopping trip with his dad had his cell phone camera rolling on Friday, May 30th. The boy captured dramatic video of a train slamming into a semi after the semi’s trailer got stuck on the tracks near The Villages, Florida.

According to The Orlando Sentinel, Austin Broderick and his dad were two miles from home when they came upon the rig stalled out at the train tracks.

Austin had his camera rolling as the 130-car freight train slammed into the semi — stopped on the tracks.

No one was injured in this incident.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the semi’s driver was already out of the truck — waiting on the side of the road when the train slammed into it.

After the impact, Austin and his dad realized what the semi was hauling.
