It was quick but the driver saw it coming. According to the engineer, the driver was attempting to remove his truck,(which had become stuck) from the crossing. He looked at the train, then looked back at the (passengers side)rear view mirror of the truck. Then, just before the train hit, he looked back at the train. It appears, he had time to get out, but possibly under estimated, the speed of the train. About all, that was left of the truck, was the motor and frame. Train hit center of drivers door.

Well, you may judge the info as mean, but it is factual and based on witness accounts.
