Do you feel sometimes that your life is a train wreck? We spare a thought for this train driver - who thanks to an encounter with a low bridge in Memphis US mangled $2million dollars worth of new cars. It was an ambitious battle against the bridge.

Footage posted on YouTube shows freight cars slowly getting decapitated one at a time as the train gradually comes to a full stop. Oddly, one of the railcars is already severely damaged before it goes under the bridge, which suggests that it was likely taller than the rest and that it fell victim to a different bridge. Two additional wagons lose their roof before the convoy stops moving. Keep in mind trains often need a mile or more to come to a full stop.
