A train was coming and a semi-truck was stuck on the railroad tracks Thursday morning in Warner Robins.

But a quick-thinking employee of a nearby business was able to call 911, which contacted the railroad company, which reached the train engineer, and a collision was avoided, according to a Warner Robins police Facebook post.

The drama unfolded at the intersection of Green Street and Ga. 247, Warner Robins police tweeted.

Thankfully, only traffic was impacted.

The tracks at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Ga. 247 as well as Watson and Ga. 247 were blocked by the incident.
