A CSX train collided with a semitruck late Tuesday in Lakeland, closing an intersection for several hours.

The truck driver left the truck and attempted to contact the authorities to stop the train, according to Fox 13, but the attempt was unsuccessful.

The train was carrying 48 loads of mixed freight and 17 empty cars from Winter Haven to Jacksonville. The boxes were filled with meats such as beef, chicken and seafood.

The train did not derail and was cleared to move just before 6 a.m.

According to officials, Lakeland police were notified but CSX officials could not reached in time to get the trailer off the tracks.

The Colorado Meat and Seafood Company that was expecting the delivery said they no longer wanted to the food, so CSX employees began tossing the scattered packages into a nearby dumpster. "Some people are so hungry they'll wash it off".
