4 injured after train hits truck
A train struck a truck Friday afternoon on Old River Road at Maria Sorrell Road, and the driver had to be cut from the wreckage.
A woman and two children were sent by EMS to the hospital while emergency workers had to extricate the driver, whose legs were pinned, according to Bulloch County Sheriff's Sgt. Tracy Miller.
The driver, whose identity was not available at the scene, was airlifted to a Savannah hospital for treatment of visible, but nonfatal injuries to his body, Miller said.
I witnessed a crossing accident on the same railroad down in Metter, coming out of the scrap metal yard, a few years back. Very low speed minor impact. This may have bbeen a bit faster.
As far as I know, the crossing is unprotected outside of standard road signs. I believe this is at the old metal plant, long since closed. No one up this way, this close to the Dover connection, gets any cars anymore; it's pretty much a straight shot to Southern States at Statesboro before the road gets any business.
Still, the MAS is pretty low; train was probably only going 25 or less.
