Wind power met the power of a locomotive this weekend, as a truck hauling a wind turbine blade was struck by a train in Luling, Texas. The extra-long cargo was being escorted through town when it became hung up on a railroad crossing while attempting to negotiate the turn. No injuries have been reported.
This video posted to Facebook Sunday by Jon Throgmorton gives the clearest view of the truck at the time it was hit by the train, which was passing through the level crossing at speed. Throgmorton says he works for another trucking outfit; his employee witnessed/recorded the incident.
