A freight train slammed into a big rig that was stuck on railroad tracks in Sugar Land late Monday morning. The truck had a cargo of two cars, one of them an antique Rolls Royce limousine.
Adolph said no injuries were reported.
The trucker was trying to cross the railroad tracks when his low-profile auto-hauling trailer got struck on the raised rail bed, Adolph said. The trucker called 911 and climbed out of the truck's cab. Then he saw the train barreling toward his 18-wheeler.
Adolph said the train company, Kansas City Southern, was notified about the stuck truck, but the company could not alert the locomotive engineer in time for the train to stop.
The train, two engines and four rail cars, plowed into the truck's trailer.
It was not known what, if anything, the train was hauling, but no hazardous materials were spilled.
