A fiery collision between a train and a semi-truck southeast of Pine Bluff left one person hospitalized Friday afternoon.
It happened at U.S. 65 and Klie Road in Grady. Video posted on Facebook at 12:31 p.m. shows a train stopped on a railroad that runs adjacent to the highway. Underneath the train is the burning wreckage of a semi-truck. More wreckage can be seen down the highway near a railroad crossing.
A witness said the semi-truck was torn in half.
The video shows a man, believed to be the truck driver, lying on the ground surrounded by a group of people.
The Jefferson County sheriff's office identified driver as Dustin Kebodeaux, 35, of Louisiana. The sheriff's office said he was ejected 35-40 yards from the vehicle. Kebodeaux was taken to UAMS Medical Center in Little Rock for treatment. He was "alive and responsive."
The sheriff's office said Kebodeax, who was hauling a trailer of cotton, refused to yield at a railroad crossing stop sign.
The train conductor suffered minor injuries.
