One person was hurt when a Kansas City Southern Railroad train engine hit a UPS delivery truck at crossing in Stilwell Wednesday morning.

The United Parcel Service truck had just made a delivery at a business near the crossing on the north end of the Adair County community when it was hit by the train.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the crash happened just before noon.  The KCS train engine was pulling a single boxcar at the time of the crash.

The UPS driver was treated and released at a Stilwell hospital.

Troopers say the crossing was marked with crossing bars, but no lights.
