BULLS GAP, Tenn. (WJHL) — A train struck a tractor-trailer Tuesday evening in the Bulls Gap area.

State troopers say the tractor-trailer was traveling north on State Line Road near Highway 11E when it became immobilized on a railroad crossing.

The driver got out of the truck and called 911 to get the railway shut down, but an eastbound Norfolk Southern train struck the tractor-trailer before the railroad could be notified.

“There were no leaks,” said Hawkins County EMA Director Jamie Miller. “The train remained on the tracks.”

Drivers should expect delays in the area, Miller said.
