Train Hits Trailer in Midland County

MIDLAND COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

An accident involving a train left behind a big mess on Thursday afternoon.

The accident happened just before 4 p.m. at the intersection of South County Road 1250 and Business 20.

DPS Troopers tell NewsWest 9, a tractor trailer was stopped at a stop sign at the train crossing and a black pickup hauling a trailer was turning right at the intersection.

We’re told both drivers saw the train approaching and didn’t want to back out or speed into the intersection and cause an accident.

Troopers say the train hit the trailer of the pickup and that cause the trailer to swing around and hit the tractor trailer.

Everyone was able to get out before the accident.

No injuries were reported.
