A gravel-truck driver was hospitalized with serious injuries after his vehicle was hit by a train,

Arkansas State Police reported.

Trooper Liz Chapman, a spokesman for the agency, said the wreck happened Wednesday morning at the railroad crossing at Chandler Lane and Greenfield Road in Poinsett County.

The truck driver failed to yield to the northbound train, at which point the train hit the driver's side of the truck, authorities said.

Police had not named the injured driver as of Wednesday afternoon.

Chapman said the crash is under investigation, and a complete report would be available in about a week.
