MABTON, WA -- At 11:37 AM October 12th, a semi-truck pulling a trailer loaded with manure was going north on Phillips Rd near SR22. A train with 107 cars was traveling eastbound on the train tracks. 

The semi-truck driver attempted to beat the train through the intersection. The train struck the truck causing the trailer to become dislodged. Meanwhile, the load of manure was spilled on the county roadway. 

The driver of the truck was not injured, however, his truck was badly damaged and the trailer was destroyed. 

The drive of the truck was cited for failing to yield at a railroad crossing.
