EDMOND, Okla. — A confrontation breaks out at an Edmond stop light, after a semi-truck driver ended up stuck on the tracks of an oncoming train. It happened this morning, at the intersection of Broadway and Covell in north Edmond.

Police say a woman in a pickup was at a red light, with a semi-truck close behind.

Part of the big rig was stopped across the tracks when the lights began blinking and the railroad arms came down.

With nowhere else to go the driver of the semi drove forward and ended up pushing the car in front of him.

Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow says, “He was parked across the tracks, so he actually physically used his semi to move her truck out of the way”

Luckily no one was injured, but the driver of the semi did damage the railroad crossing arms. He was also cited for reckless driving.
