Minor damage after train vs. dump truck in BR

There was a minor wreck involving a train and a dump truck around 4pm in Baton Rouge.

It happened on the tracks on S. Choctaw near Souter drives.

Officials said the dump truck driver spotted the train at the last min and tried to clear the tracks. The train ended up hitting the truck near the rear causing the rear tire to come off.

The train did have minor damage to the front and some hydraulic hoses. About an hour later though, the train continued its route.

There were no injuries.
