18-Wheeler Overturns Onto Train Tracks in Walker County

HUNTSVILLE, Texas A big rig crashed in Walker County and overturned on train tracks.

It happened Tuesday afternoon on Highway 405 between Dodge and Huntsville.

The Walker County Sheriff's Office says an oncoming train was able to stop a few hundred feet short of the intersection where the big truck was overturned, and avoided an even bigger crash.

The truck driver was not injured and Highway 405 is back open.
