LEBANON, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Music City Star commuter train collided with a semi Friday afternoon in Lebanon.

The sheriff of Wilson County confirmed it happened at Hartman Drive. No one was injured.

Sgt. PJ Hardy told News 2 the semi was on the tracks and the train hit the rear trailer.

In a statement from Nashville MTA, officials say delays were expected while another train was brought in to pick up passengers. The affected train was stopped while authorities investigated.

Once the investigation was complete, Sgt. Hardy told News 2 the truck’s trailer contained food products, and the driver did not receive a citation. A car was stopped in front of him, impeding his ability to move forward.
