SUFFOLK--A tractor trailer and a Norfolk Southern train collided in Suffolk late Thursday morning.

It happened around 11:00 a.m. at the Lake Cohoon Road and Lake Meade Drive crossing.

The rear of the empty tractor trailer was sheared off.

Norfolk Southern spokesperson Robin Chapman told WVEC.com the 134-car coal train was heading to Norfolk and the company will cooperate with investigators.

Lake Kilby Road was closed between Indian Trail Road and Lake Cohoon Road and a detour was in place.

The road reopened around 4:00 p.m.

No one was injured.
