TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST...Amazing video: A teenager filmed dramatic video of a train slamming into a tractor trailer that was stuck on the tracks.

The driver wasn't in the semi, and nobody was injured in the crash. But the truck was filled with watermelons, which then spilled all over the road.

The teenager, 15 year old Austin Broderick, was on his way home from the store with his father in Oxford, Florida. Austin told the Orlando Sentinel "I was kind of worried about the driver, but I was kind of excited because I'd never seen something like this happen."

Austin's father Dean said "you hear the train, then it's dead silence, and then wham! I've never seen anything like it. It was breathtaking."

CSX said the conductor saw the train was stuck and called an emergency, but was not able to stop the train in time. The train was on its way to Georgia from Florida, and most of the 158 cars were empty.
