July 18, 2006

Valdosta - Circuit failure was the cause of a train wreck at a Valdosta railroad crossing last night.

J.C. Wolfe was driving a log truck through the West Savannah Avenue and St. Augustine Road crossing when his vehicle was hit by a CSX freight train.  The warning lights and crossing arms were not activated at the time.

Wolfe and his passenger were taken to South Georgia Medical Center for minor injuries.  No one else was injured.

CSX officials are still on sight investigating the crossing barriers.
