Nov. 13 (UPI) -- A truck parked too close to the train tracks in Vietnam ended up destroyed when the driver didn't move the vehicle in time.

The video, recorded Friday in Ha Noi, shows a truck parked parallel to the railroad tracks without enough space to let a train pass without making contact.

The filmer said the truck's driver was sitting nearby and didn't react when the approaching train sounded its horn, but the man can be seen running up to the vehicle after the train arrives and destroys the vehicle with a series of sideswipes.

The truck's driver attempts to get into the vehicle to move it, but he is forced to flee to avoid flying debris.

"When walking my dog on the street, I saw a train coming up to the truck parked by the trail. However, the truck driver sitting on the pavement opposite to the trail didn't do anything when hearing the horn from the train. As a result, the truck was destroyed by the train," the filmer wrote.
