An Amtrak train struck the flatbed trailer of a truck in Florida.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office said in a post on Facebook that the train hit a portion of a truck that had just crossed the tracks in Auburndale on Thursday, shortly before 3 p.m.

The train dragged the trailer a short distance before coming to a stop.

No injuries were reported to anyone on the train or the driver of the semi.

Deputies are investigating.
