SAN MARCOS, Texas – No one was injured Monday when Amtrak’s Texas Eagle struck a semi truck near San Marcos, about midway between San Antonio and Austin. KXAN-NBC reports that the collision happened Monday evening and delayed the train by more than an hour.

According to law enforcement, the semi truck was unable to clear the crossing before the train arrived. The incident completely destroyed the trailer. There were about 150 passengers and crew aboard the train at the time of the incident.

Crews removed the truck from the scene soon after, reopening the Union Pacific line later in the evening.
