An alleged drunk driver is in jail after a train collided with his truck in Liberty County.

It happened early Saturday morning in the community of Cleveland.

DPS Troopers say the driver took a wrong turn and found himself stuck on some railroad tracks, as a train headed right for him.

The driver and all of the occupants of the truck managed to escape the vehicle.

The train was unable to avoid a collision and slammed into the rear of the truck.

Amazingly, no one was injured.

DPS says the driver was under the influence.

He was booked into the Liberty County Jail.
