Train collides with semi truck near Slaton Highway

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A train collided with a tractor trailer in southeast Lubbock on Tuesday morning, and no one was hurt.

The accident happened around 8:45 a.m., on the Slaton Highway, near the Coors Distribution Center. There was little damage to the train, but the impact cut the empty trailer in two.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 spoke with Corporal John Gonzalez, of the Texas Department of Public Safety. He said that the truck driver, Brad Johnson of Slaton, had just dropped his cargo at Great Plains Distribution and was in the process of leaving the facility. Gonzalez said it was not immediately clear whether he had stopped at the intersection, or tried to beat the train. Either way, he failed to yield the right of way and received a ticket for it.

This accident remains under investigation.
