UNION, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Union County dispatchers said they received reports of a crash involving a train on Friday afternoon.

Dispatchers said the incident occurred on Thompson Boulevard and they received reports of a truck hit.

A FOX Carolina crew at the scene said the driver of the truck was not injured when the front right side of the vehicle was clipped by the train. According to our crew, there are no stop signs, warning lights or sirens at the railroad crossing where the crash took place.

The driver, who was working for TBA Construction, did not see the train until the last minute and was able to back the truck up far enough to avoid the train.

The incident happened near TBA Construction. Company owners did not wish to give comment.
