Dawson--  A slight scare in Terrell County Sunday afternoon after a Georgia Southwestern Railroad train car fell over onto the roadway.

It happened at the 12th Avenue crossing in Dawson. That crossing remained closed Sunday night. One car with five sections popped off the track sometime after 5 p.m.  Railroad workers were in the middle of shuffling the cars around when it all happened.

"Our preliminary findings say that it hit the switch right to the North of us. One of the wheels went down, could be for a combination of events. We don't know until we do a more thorough investigation. It could be track related. It could be the train handling by the engineer We won't know until we thoroughly investigate it," said Dave Smoot, Georgia Southwestern Railroad VP.

There were no injuries. The one car that did fall over was damaged slightly but should be okay. The mess should all be cleared up by Monday morning.
