JOHNSON COUNTY, KS (KCTV) -- An unoccupied pickup was hit by a train early Thursday morning outside of Spring Hill, according to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office.

The vehicle was parked on the train tracks on 175th Street at Woodland Road in Johnson County around 2 a.m. overnight, before the collision. The driver was found elsewhere and was uninjured, according to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office.

The truck was towed from the scene, and railroad traffic continued shortly afterward.

The original version of this story, based on initial information at the scene, said that the driver of the pickup was at the scene during the crash response. That was not the case.
