Traffic was affected for much of Wednesday afternoon and evening in Argyle after a collision involving a train and a truck.

Argyle Police Chief Emmitt Jackson said that a tractor-trailer got stuck on the tracks headed west on FM 407 near HWY 377 on Wednesday afternoon, and the train was unable to stop.

The train conductor saw the truck and was able to slow down enough to avoid a serious collision, and no one was injured.

FM 407 was reopened around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.
