Lee Highway reopened before 8 p.m. after a train hit a tractor-trailer on the tracks.

The train struck the truck near I-66 in Gainesville before 6 p.m., closing Lee between Route 55 and Interstate 66 in Prince William County and backing up traffic for miles. The exit ramps from I-66 to Lee Highway also were closed.

Traffic likely was stopped for a red light and the trailer was sitting on the tracks when the train came, police said. That intersection does not have crossing bars.

No word on injuries.
