WATCH: Train barrels through semitruck parked on railroad in Schertz

The driver of the semitruck managed to escape before the train struck Tuesday morning.

SAN ANTONIO — No one was hurt in a dramatic crash that unfolded in Schertz Tuesday morning when a train barreled through a semitruck that had potentially stalled on the railroad track.

Officials said the driver of the semitruck, which itself had been carrying a pickup truck, managed to exit and get to safety before the collision. It happened around 8:45 a.m., and the wreckage was cleared by about 10:30 a.m., according to Schertz authorities. 

Update @ 10:33 am: The train has been cleared from the tracks. Thank you for your patience as the crews worked to...
