Teen pits SUV against train


By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) –An SUV taken out for a joy ride ended up crushed by a train in Bainbridge.

Authorities say 15-year old James Harrell took his mother's Chevy Surburban for a late night ride Tuesday.

He took a turn too sharp and veered into a ditch with the SUV's back end just over the railroad tracks near Clay and Back Streets downtown.

An approaching train came around a curve and didn't have time to stop, slamming into the vehicle and totaling it in the process.

Amazingly, no one was hurt.
