Train smashes into 18-wheeler on railroad tracks in Magnolia
MAGNOLIA, TX (KTRK) -- A train smashed into an 18-wheeler in the Magnolia area Monday.
The trailer was crossing the railroad tracks FM 1488 and FM 1774 and the impact sent debris flying everywhere. Amazingly, we're told no one was hurt.
An ABC13 viewer shot video of the train as it plowed into the trailer.
It's going to take some time to clean up, which means this area will be closed down for some time.
According to police, the truck was hauling a $2 million piece of oilfield equipment from Houston to Monterrey, Mexico. Officials said the trailer had a low clearance and bottomed out on the tracks.
