(NEW YORK) — Three people escaped without serious injury after a crash between a freight train and a tractor trailer — which was all caught on another driver’s dash cam.

Just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, in Queens, New York, a truck driver’s camera captured a freight train zoom by and collide with an 18-wheeler tractor-trailer.

The train pushed the tractor-trailer about 100 to 200 feet down the tracks, according to ABC News station WABC-TV in New York.

The dash cam video appears to show that the gates weren’t down and the lights didn’t flash until just before the collision.

The tractor-trailer driver suffered minor injuries, WABC reported, and the train conductor and engineer refused medical attention.

Officials told WABC that the crash is under investigation.
