SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Iowa Motor Vehicle Enforcement officers say around 10:45 a.m., a Walmart semi-truck driver was stopped at a light at Singing Hills Boulevard and South Lewis.

Officers say the driver thought he was already across the tracks and says he could see the train about 100-yards down the track.

When the Union Pacific train got to the intersection, officers say it clipped the end of the trailer.

They say no one was hurt and are still on scene cleaning up the accident.
