Valdosta - Two people suffered only minor injuries when the truck they were in was hit by a train at a Valdosta crossing.

Shortly after 5 this afternoon, a truck was hit by a CSX freight train at the West Savannah Avenue and St. Augustine Road crossing.  The driver, J.C. Wolfe, and his passenger were taken to South Georgia Medical Center, but their injuries are reported to be minor.

Police are on the scene and checking on the status of the crossing gates and warning lights.  "I can also tell you right now what we're being told initially by CSX railroad company is that for one reason or another the railroad barriers did not go down and that's being confirmed by witnesses," said Captain Brian Childress of the Valdosta Police Department

CSX railroad officials and Valdosta Police are investigating the cause of the faulty barriers.
