REPUBLIC, Mo. (KY3) - A freight train smashed into a livestock trailer in Republic, Mo. Tuesday night.

It happened at State Highway MM and Farm Road 168, just off U.S. 60.

The truck driver told KY3 news he had just unloaded the trailer and had crossed the tracks when he stopped in traffic that backed up ahead of U.S. 60. That left the trailer on the tracks, where the train hit it.

The crash backed up traffic. Nobody suffered any injuries.
