TUKWILA, Wash. -- A truck driver's jaunt through Tukwila Monday morning was a smashing success, only no one's happy about it.

The semi truck struck train trestle at Longacres Way near the entrance to Tukwila's Sounder train station.

Aside from causing traffic issues on the road below, it created 40 minute delays on the Sounder run as crews inspected the bridge and and its tracks.

Track inspectors were out assessing the damage and determining if any repairs to the trestle were needed.

There are no reports of anyone hurt.
