Florida watermelon-filled truck gets hit by train (VIDEO)

A witness to a collision had quite a reaction as he watched a train smash into a trailer full of watermelons.

Austin Broderick and his father, Dean, saw a trailer stalled on a train track in central Florida and they could see a train approaching, so the teen pulled out his cell phone and recorded it all. At one point one of them yells out "Oh, damn."

According to the Orlando Sentinel , the father and son were on their way home from Walmart last Friday when they saw the trailer stuck on the tracks of U.S. Highway 301 and Sumter County Road 104.

They got out of their car and checked on the truck driver, according to the report. When they found out the driver was already out of the truck on the other side of the road they got back in their vehicle, backed up and Austin began recording on his smartphone.

 A few moments later the 130-car train hit the truck, spreading watermelons everywhere.

The Orlando Sentinel reports no one was injured.
