No one was injured when a Jeep was struck by a train at the railroad crossing in Cresson Thursday morning. The driver tried to make it across the railroad tracks when it was struck by the train and caught fire. The driver was able to climb out of the vehicle and was uninjured. The accident caused a traffic backup, but the vehicle has now been loaded on a wrecker.

Texas Department of Public Safety investigated the incident.
