MIDLAND, Texas (AP) - Police say no injuries were reported after a train crashed into a tractor-trailer in West Texas.

Midland police say the collision happened Monday after the vehicle stopped on the tracks while braking for a nearby stoplight. He tells police he thought he was out of the train’s path.

Police say it’s unclear how fast the Union Pacific Railroad train was traveling. Crossings were blocked for more than a mile Monday while crews worked to clean up the wreck.
