Train slams into 18 wheeler stuck on railroad tracks in Schertz
SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Another incident of a train slamming into an 18 wheeler at a busy intersection in Schertz.
It happened Tuesday morning at the Schertz Parkway/FM 78 intersection.
The truck that was hauling a pickup on a trailer got hung up on the high center as it crossed the tracks.
Motorists, including the truck driver who saw what was about to happen called 9-1-1.
But there wasn’t enough time to stop an oncoming train.
The Union Pacific train slammed into the stuck truck, sending debris in several directions.
While there was a big mess to clear up and a major traffic headache during the morning commute, nobody was hurt.
Prior to Tuesday’s collision, the most recent incident happened less than a mile away on those same tracks. It was last September when an 18 wheeler got stuck on the tracks at FM 78 and 1st street and was hit by a train.
A few years earlier, a similar crash took place a few miles North at intersection in Cibolo.
Tuesday’s crash was caught on video by a motorist who was waiting at a red light at the intersection.
