CARL JUNCTION, Mo. (KODE) — A tractor-trailer is hit by a train on Highway YY while waiting to turn on Highway 171 this afternoon.
The trailer was just barely sitting on the tracks when a train coming from the southeast hit the rear end.
The Missouri Highway Patrol says the train was empty so it was able to slow down quite a bit which kept damage to the trailer, minimal.
There were no injuries in the incident.
