In North Carolina this evening, traffic is moving again on the tracks where a passenger train collided with a truck. But there are new questions and a new view this evening of that moment of impact. Look at the blue there. That's the tarp on the truck. The red lights showing a train is coming and that collision. Well tonight, the questions over a call that was never made. Would it have made a difference? ABC's David Kerley reporting from the scene again tonight. Reporter: From one side of the cross, the crash. And the horror as seen from the other side. Oh my god! Oh my god! Reporter: More than 60 hurt. Only one still hospitalized. Tonight, the two derailed amtrak cars and the engine removed. The tracks reopened and a happy reunion.

Just drivers who couldn't get off the rails. In fact, there are six incidents a day on American rail crossings. 2,000 a year. But could the train in north Carolina yesterday have been warned? I thought, oh, those are train tracks. I hope a train doesn't come. And about that time is when it came around the corner. Reporter: The truck, car rig a long prefabricated structure, was being escorted by a state trooper. And that truck was covering the tracks for between five and eight minutes. But there is a sign here that says, if you have a problem, call this number in case of an in emergency. There's no indication anyone called that toll free number.
