Like something out of Keystone Cops: truck driver Vincent Vuong Tran found his semi (full of watermelons) stalling on railroad tracks near the Villages last night, and despite valiant efforts, Tran failed to remove his cargo from the path of a barreling CSX train. The 130-car choo choo pummeled into the disabled vehicle at approximately 6:47 p.m. No one was hurt during the collision except the watermelons, which quickly painted a small messy sea of red and green.

Although it could not be verified at press time, experts agree prop comedian Gallagher most likely experienced some sort of lightheadedness or at the very least a tingling sensation in his mallet arm at the same time the crash occurred.
