In the most terrifying video you’ll see all day, a lengthy Louisiana freight train fell off a bridge during a crazy storm this morning. It was literally like watching a lego train.

According to WGNO, the news organization that caught the catastrophe on camera,

Our cameras were rolling when strong winds knocked over some train cars on the Huey P. Long Bridge. It happened around 10:30 a.m. Monday in Elmwood behind the Raising Cane’s restaurant on South Clearview Parkway and Bloomfield Street.

Nancy Stoltz, with the New Orleans Public Belt Railroad, said the Union Pacific train was traveling about 4 mph when winds knocked the containers off the bridge.

No injuries were reported.

Stoltz said structural engineers are enroute to assess the remaining cars and any damage to the tracks.

We know, it sounds hard to believe. But the video below will have your mind totally changed.
