Footage has been captured of a freight train crashing into an 18-wheeler truck carrying a wind turbine blade in Texas.
No injuries were reported to the police, according to San Antonio Express News and Fox Business, following the incident on Sunday in Luling, which lies around an hour south of Austin. However Union Railroad told Newsweek that train crew members sustained minor injuries.
A video capturing the incident (which uses explicit language) was posted on Facebook and has been shared thousands of times.

Despite the crossing being clear when the truck came to pass, the gates came down upon it, leaving the wind turbine blade vulnerable ahead of the crash.
Police and Union Railroad are investigating the incident.
