LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A train collided with an 18-wheeler southeast of Lubbock just before 10:45 Monday morning in the 5700 block of Highway 84 near Great Plains Distributors. Initially Aerocare was dispatched but then canceled.  EMS took the truck driver to a local hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

DPS had not released information late Monday afternoon as to the name of the driver or whether any citation might be pending.

On May 4th 2010, also near the Great Plains Distribution Center, there was a similar incident involving an 18-wheeler and a train.
