MOODY, Texas (KWTX) – Moody police have posted video that shows an Amtrak train hitting an 18-wheeler Wednesday afternoon at a crossing on State Highway 317 in Moody.

An Amtrak spokesman said no one on the train was injured and no other injuries were immediately reported.

The train had slowed before the collision and damage to the rig appeared to be light.

The train continued on its route after the 18-wheeler is removed from the tracks and a new engineer arrives to take over the trip.

Engineers may opt to be replaced after such accidents, the spokesman said.
