BNSF Railway Company says a tanker truck got stuck on train tracks near Jarales on Sunday evening, causing a train collision and fuel spill.
According to BNSF spokesman Joe Faust, the tanker got stuck at the Jarales Road crossing and was struck by a train going around 20 mph.
The truck spilled about 4,000 gallons of fuel onto the ground, but state police say the surrounding community was not threatened.
A BNSF remediation team responded to the scene and cleaned up the fuel. The scene was cleared in about three hours.
Faust said the truck driver suffered non-life threatening injuries during the collision. The train crew was not injured.
