A Central Link light rail train hit a semi truck on the tracks in Seattle's Rainier Valley neighborhood Friday, cutting the truck nearly in half.

The crash is blocking the intersection at Martin Luther King Way South and South Holly Street.

No one was injured.

The truck was carrying boxes of Mountain Dew bottles, spilling them all over the road.

It's not clear what the truck was doing on the tracks just prior to the accident.

Sound Transit said Central Link light rail is temporarily delayed in both north and south directions while crews clean the crash up.
