TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Nobody cried over it, but there was a lot of spilled milk in Tifton Tuesday.

A train slammed into a Dairyland semi truck trailer.

The driver, 40-year-old Ronald Harpe, is charged with failure to yield the right of way.

Harpe told investigators he did not hear the Norfolk Southern train's horn as he approached the crossing on Second Street shortly after 10:00 Tuesday morning.

The load of milk, which will be destroyed, is valued at $17,000. Harpe was treated for minor injuries at the scene.
