Circumstances:
On landing, the aircraft hit a truck crossing the runway threshold. The aircraft crashed on runway and was damaged beyond repair. It appears that the pilot activated the warning system, which should have triggered the lights and the gate but due to a technical problem, the gate did not function properly, so the truck driver decided to cross the runway at the time the aircraft was landing.
