On Friday, March 27th, a tractor-trailer driven by Ryan Fung of Palm Harbor stalled on train tracks as a freight train was approaching. Florida Highway Patrol, who responded to the scene at Doctor’s Lake in Orange Park, said that Mr. Fung was able to escape the cab of the vehicle just before the train barreled through the trailer. No injuries were reported in the accident, however, there was some notable property damage.
The tractor-trailer happened to be carrying a McLaren sports car valued at over $300,000. Dr. Jorg Bober, the owner of the McLaren told local news reports that, “The company came by to pick up the McLaren for regular work, warranty work. And I guess he got stuck on the train tracks.
In a twist of irony, one of Dr. Bober’s nurses called him to tell him about the accident and to avoid the area as there was a significant traffic delay, only unbeknownst to his nurse, was the fact that Dr. Bober’s vehicle had been directly involved in causing the delay.
When asked how he felt about learning his exotic vehicle had been totaled he replied, “Eh, we’ll get another one.”
While the loss of such a fine vehicle is tragic to some extent, it is important to reiterate that there were no injuries in this incident. Considering that there was both a train and tractor-trailer involved, the fact that nobody was hurt is truly fortunate.
