MILLER CO, AR (KSLA) -

It was a close call for the driver of flatbed truck who found his rig stuck across the railroad tracks in Miller County Friday afternoon. 

It happened on CR 32 at 163 near Doddridge in southwest Arkansas.

The driver says his truck got stuck in the mud across the train tracks, and he wasn't able to move it before a train started coming. The truck was hauling a trailer loaded with a track hoe, weighing an estimated 80-85,000 pounds. 

"We didn't even have time to move the truck or anything. All we could do was jump out and I went one way and went the other way."

The train struck the trailer, knocking the track hoe off. No one was injured.
