OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) - The train line that was the scene of a massive derailment last week had another accident on its tracks on Monday. 

The Norfolk Southern line reopened on Monday following the derailment on April 1. One of the first trains through the tracks was involved in an accident with a cement truck on the 600 block of Old Columbus Road around 9:44 a.m. CDT. 

The cement truck, which was from Oconee Concrete out of Milledgeville, GA, was crossing a private crossing when it crossed in front of the train.

The driver of the cement truck received no injuries, nor did the crew on the train.

Emergency crews are on scene while clean-up efforts are ongoing. The tracks are expected to be open as soon as possible.
