Intersection should re-open Tuesday

October 22, 2007

Dawson --  An intersection in Dawson is still closed Monday afternoon after a train derailed Sunday.  

A train car fell into the 12th Avenue roadway while several train cars were being shuffled.

Georgia Southwestern Railroad workers believe a defective switch caused the train to jump the tracks, but the accident is still under investigation. No one was hurt, though that railroad car was damaged.

Workers are clearing the 12th Avenue intersection this afternoon, and say it will open up again Tuesday morning.
