A driver and his wife escaped a tractor-trailer just seconds before it was struck by a train.

“So my wife jumps out of the truck. She's screaming at me to get out of the truck. I'm just trying to save the truck,” truck driver Eli Mercado told WSB in Atlanta.

The tractor-trailer was stuck on some tracks in Norcross, Georgia.

Everything in the big rig was shredded and thrown all over the road.

Mercado told WSB that they were moving to Florida.
