That truck does not seem to be damaged much.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.

Yes but if the truck was coming from the right it had the right of way and the train should have stopped !!!!!, most likely truck driver didn't look either.

I love how all these vehicle crashes have the same "the driver ran away" lol. Just thinking of some scared bloke running for 5 hours brings me a slight chuckle.
