A loaded passenger train almost collided with a freight train in Ontario, Canada, where the incident was caught on video (below).

The freight train was sitting right in the path of the VIA commuter train, which threw on its breaks.

The engineer of the passenger train jumped off the train to save his own life moments before the possible crash.

The video was posted by YouTube by a user named Newstime 1025. It is not clear which train was actually at fault.

According to the Daily Mail, the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National train lines both have red and white trains.

"We have no record of such an incident this year," Ed Greenberg, a media relations spokesman for Canadian Pacific, told the Daily Mail. "In fact the equipment in that video appears to be at least a decade old."
