Video released Friday by Georgia transportation officials shows the moment terrified passengers in Atlanta fled a bus as a freight train hurtled towards them.

The accident occurred on Wednesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which reported that the driver was unable to move the bus because of a pickup truck that was blocking traffic.

"Train's coming! Train's coming!" one passenger can be heard yelling to alert the driver, before all on board grab their belongings and make for the exits.

Six people were taken to hospital, including the bus driver, who was still strapped to his seat at the time of impact.

Local police told the newspaper they were still searching for the pickup truck driver.

The bus driver, meanwhile, has reportedly been placed on leave with pay during the investigation.
