A train clipped the back of a truck that was sitting on the tracks, Saturday night, in College Station.

It happened just before 10 p.m., at the intersection of George Bush Drive and Wellborn Road.

Brandon Fulton, the truck's passenger said both he and the male driver live near Dallas, and are unfamiliar with the area. Fulton said he and the driver were using a G.P.S. device to search for directions, when their vehicle was hit.

The driver was traveling East on George Bush Drive. He said his truck and the vehicle in front of him had driven over the tracks and were stopped at the light. He told News Three that he thought his entire truck was out of the way, so neither he nor Fulton paid any attention to the train's horn.

The men say the force from the train's impact turned their truck at a 90 degree angle, and that the driver side door hit the bumper of the car in front of them.

According to the men, neither of them were seriously injured.
