ARGYLE, Texas -- A freight train crashed into a trailer at a crossing in Argyle Wednesday evening.

A dramatic cell phone video of the incident at Crawford Road and Highway 377 shows the engineer sounding the train's horn before smashing into what appeared to be a flatbed trailer hauling construction equipment.

According to initial reports, the bottom of the trailer became stuck on the crown of the crossing as the train approached. The truck driver was able to get out before impact, and there were no reports of injuries.

Argyle is located 7 miles southwest of Denton.
