BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: This was the scene last Friday in Kings Mountain , North Carolina . The 18-wheeler you see there is stuck at a train crossing that trucks aren't supposed to use, and that would be a freight train coming, barreling down the tracks. The woman shooting the video was screaming at the top of her lungs. She did not realize both occupants of the truck got out in time. No injuries. The freight train was moving like a freight train and could not stop. The truck was cut cleanly in half. It was carrying bales of cotton, which were then strewn all over the place .
