CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA (WRIC) — Emergency crews responded to a collision between a train and a tractor-trailer in Chester, Virginia on Thursday. 

The crash occurred just before 4:30 p.m. on Curtis Street in Chester, according to Chesterfield Fire. 

Dashcam footage sent to WRIC shows two people flee from the tractor-trailer, which appears to be stalled on the tracks before the train strikes the trailer. 

The train rips through the tractor-trailer and spills its items onto the railroad track. People nearby who responded to the scene looked at the wreckage in disbelief, the video shows. 

Currently, CSX has shut down the rail for other trains. 

Any injuries involved in the crash are unknown at this time.
