Freight train hits trailer in Argyle

Posted: Updated:
ARGYLE, Texas -

A close call for a truck driver in Argyle.

Cell phone video caught a freight train slamming into a trailer hauling a bulldozer across the tracks at Crawford Rd. and Hwy. 377.

Incredibly, no one was hurt.

The truck driver had seconds to spare. The Argyle Fire Chief said the driver was trying to figure out how to get the trailer unstuck when he heard the train coming.

The crossing remains shut down Wednesday night while crews repair the roads. It's expected to reopen by Thursday morning.
