A truck Tuesday broke through a train crossing barrier and stalled on the train tracks at the exact same location where seven family members were killed days ago when the minibus they were on plowed through the barrier and crashed into a passing train, Channel 2 reported.

The train's spotter saw the truck stalled on the tracks at the crossing just north of the Kiryat Gat train station and warned the locomotive engineer in time for the train to come to a complete stop before it hit the truck.
