An intersection in Colorado Springs had to be shut down Tuesday afternoon because a construction crane got stuck on the railroad tracks.

It happened at Conejos Street and Las Animas Street.

Trains in the area had stop running while crews worked to get the vehicle off the tracks. Authorities say an oncoming train was barely able to stop in time, nearly hitting the truck.

A section of the tracks was damaged in the incident, and still needs to be repaired.
