Train, truck collide in Lowndes County

July 27, 2007

Lowndes County - Two employees with Fogelman Builders Supply in Valdosta were rushed to the hospital after their truck collided with a Norfolk Southern Train at Georgia 41 and Tillman Crossing.

Investigators say those workers were traveling west on Tillman around 4:00 PM Friday and didn't notice the train until the last second.

They swerved but could not avoid the train. It hit in the passenger side of the Ford Truck and knocked it into a ditch. The intersection does not have crossing bars.

Troopers say the injuries are not life threatening and the driver will most likely be charged with failure to yeild.
