CN train hits semi-trailer

There is always someone bigger.

Semi-trailers are usually the big guys on the road, but that doesn’t mean they are able to ignore stop lights at a train crossing.

Dash cam footage from Jan. 20 released by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, shows a semi pull in front of a CN train and then get hit and dragged for several hundred meters near Iron Range, Minn.

The driver of the truck, identified as James Floyd Saatela, escaped with minor injuries.
