Sugar Land police said that the accident occurred at the intersection of State Highway 90 and Brooks Street when the 18-wheeler, stuck on the train tracks, was hit. No injuries were reported at the time of the incident.

Eyewitness Bill Benoit described what he saw to the media.

“I came from Stafford and when I come across the track, (I thought) what the heck is going on. There wasn’t any cops. Nothing here then,” Benoit, a former truck driver, said.

“They don’t have much clearance like a regular truck. They’re real low the bottom frame, and when they go over that hump, they’re stuck,” he said.

Police said the driver of the 18-wheeler was not at fault.

The incident remains under investigation at this time.
