A South Valley road is back open after a crash involving a train and a truck shut it down for several hours.

The accident happened near Hanford around 6:30 a.m. Saturday. The CHP said the driver of a flat bed truck tried to go around the crossing arms at Excelsior Avenue between 11th and 12th when it was hit by the train. The impact caused a pool plaster mix to spill into the roadway.

Crews shut down the intersection for about seven hours to clean up the mess and make repairs. The truck driver suffered minor injuries.
