BRUNDIDGE, Ala. (WSFA) - Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport says no injuries were reported after a distribution truck and a train collided.

The collisions happened Wednesday morning around 11 a.m. Davenport says the truck had just left the Walmart Distribution Center and was traveling eastbound along Alabama 10.

The chief says the truck attempted to cross the tracks before the train intersected the path. Davenport says the truck was virtually split in half. The truck was empty, but the train was carrying about 60 cars, according to the chief.

The driver emerged uninjured but was shaken up, Davenport says.

The Brundidge police chief says the train crossing has lights but no arms. He believes the lights were working and says there was a CSX technician there to make sure the signals were working correctly.
