Ever wonder what would it would look like if your combo unit got hit by a train? Wonder no more. A construction worker shooting some video footage for his train-enthusiast son while on a break got more than he bargained for when the trained plowed through what appears to be a Vacall sewer cleaner that didn’t make it across the tracks in time.

The footage clearly shows the train roaring through Wellington, Utah, and the truck approaching the crossing. Seconds later, the train broadsides the truck, blowing it apart and sending the whole rear section of the sewer cleaner tumbling down the tracks.

The cab of the truck stayed largely intact, and amazingly, the driver and passenger were both fine. Still, the video is confirmation of one thing: No vehicle, even one as large and solid as this, stands a chance against a train.
