One man was taken to the hospital after a train smashed into a logging truck in Plant City.

According to Hillsborough County Fire Rescue, the crash happened at Moriczville Road and Paul Buchman Highway.

Officials said Roberto Febles was heading west on Moriczville Lane in the truck, which was loaded with logs, and was crossing the tracks when he failed to see a southbound CSX train. The train hit the right side of the semi cab and trailer and wrapping the trailer around the front end of the engine.

The truck was dragged about 1,000 feet down the tracks, dumping the load of logs along the way.

“I was surprised when I seen that train wrapped around that truck and all those logs flying everywhere,” said witness Jeff Aldridge.

Aldridge said he rushed over to help the driver of the truck once the train finally came to a screeching halt.

“It was about right after it hit," said Aldridge. "I seen them dragging the truck all the way down, and when he got here I was already here and a lady came, opened the truck door and the man got out.

"And when he got out he was staggering so I caught him."

Febles was extricated from the cab of the truck and taken to Lakeland Regional Medical Center. Officials said he received only minor injuries.

The train's crew was not injured.

“I thought it was all going to catch on fire because the train had fuel coming out the other side of it and the truck was smoking,” said Aldridge.

Officials said the railroad crossing on the road has no crossing arms or lights, but it does have "RR Crossing" signs.

“It’s on the drivers to make sure they look both ways to cross the tracks. Make sure no vehicles are coming,” said Hillsborough Fire Rescue PIO, Chip Shields.

It’s something Aldridge says he’s surprised the driver missed, especially since the train was blowing its horn the entire time.

No charges have been filed at this time pending further investigation, officials said.

Law enforcement officials and CSX are now investigating the cause.

This crash didn’t affect traffic in the area.
