Troopers not releasing much about train collision

December 22, 2005

Tifton- Troopers still aren't releasing much information about a train-vehicle collision that left a South Georgia man dead.

They say they have had trouble locating his family, so they aren't releasing his name. We do know that he was a Tift County employee.

The crash happened about 5 o'clock Wednesday afternoon on Rigdon-Aultman Road. That's about 5 miles north of the Tifton city limits. The man was killed after a Norfolk-Southern train collided with the motor grader he was driving. A front-end loader had to be brought in to remove the heavy machinery from the tracks.
