TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A train has crashed into a tractor-trailer in the northern part of Topeka and injured the rig’s driver.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (bit.ly/1mRE4XW) reports that the crash happened Monday afternoon.

Kansas Highway Patrol Lt. Dennis Shoemaker says the truck halted at the stop sign but that the driver didn’t hear the train’s whistle. Shoemaker says the driver of the truck was “coherent and talking” following the crash. The driver was taken to a hospital in an ambulance.

The crash is under investigation.
