16-Year-Old Crashes Doubles Into Locomotive

Colt Brink, according to local news outlets, was hauling a set of doubles when he was unable to stop in time to avoid colliding with the approaching locomotive. The force of impact was enough to send wheat into the cab of the truck; leaving colt pinned inside. Luckily, a motorist behind the big-rig helped Colt escape before the truck became fully engulfed in flames.
