LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A truck filled with charcoal and lighter fluid smashed into a train Friday, and it was all caught on camera.

Surveillance video shows the truck turning onto the tracks, then slamming into the train in Pulaski County on July 18. The truck then burst into flames.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's office says 27-year-old Viktor Kalchenia missed a turn and drove across the tracks.

He is recovering in the hospital and says he's lucky to be alive.
