That just cost someone a lot of money. Hopefully everyone was ok. Iím sure the truck driver and conductor were a little shook up.

No man should say oh my god that many times in a row.
Should be checking on the driver of the truck.

And anytime a windmill blade is destroyed it’s a good thing

There is a video from the other side of the tracks from the gas station. Watch the tail of the blade whip around towards train. There is a guy on a forklift or some piece of equipment that looks to have just drove up next to tracks to help. Pretty sure that blade knocks him towards the track.

I guess it’s true that trains don’t stop for wood, water, or coal……..or blades.

Not really getting rid of a turbine, more like 1 blade. They’ll ship another one in no time, my wind farm had 600 blades delivered over a year span. I’m sure they got a blade sitting in there laydown yard.
