No one was injured this morning when a train struck a car hauler on the railroad tracks in Springdale.

Susan Terpay, a spokeswoman for the Norfolk Southern Railroad, said the accident occurred at 3:45 a.m. at a crossing near the intersection of James and Railroad streets. An eastbound train hauling 130 cars loaded with coal struck the truck, which was empty.

Work crews were able to reopen the track by 6 a.m.

Springdale police said they had no report available on the accident.
