A big rig hit by a train caused a big mess just west of downtown.

Police say the big rig had just loaded up with crackers and other goods. The driver was following his GPS to get to his destination, and went over a steep railroad crossing where the truck got stuck.

Crews couldn't move the truck before a train came through and hit it, knocking the big rig on its side. The truck driver was OK, but did receive a traffic citation.
