PLANT CITY (FOX 13) - Emergency crews in Hillsborough County are cleaning up after a collision between a semi-truck and a train.

The accident scene is near the intersection of Paul Buchman Highway and Moriczville Lane north of Plant City.  According to Hillsborough Fire Rescue, a logging truck was trying to cross the tracks there when it was hit by a train.

The crossing was at a gravel road that has no train warning lights, just a sign.

The view from SkyFOX showed the CSX train stopped on the tracks with logs and the damaged truck jammed up all around the engine.

The truck driver was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, deputies said. No one on the train was hurt.
