A horrible bit of luck for three military families.

Some of their belongings were destroyed when a train slammed into their moving truck.

Crews in Valdosta spent the day cleaning up this mess.

This Mayflower truck was split in half when a Norfolk Southern train hit the trailer at the South Oak Street tracks around eight o'clock Monday morning.

We're told the truck was moving three military families.

Their clothes and furniture were strewn all along the tracks.

Crews repaired the crossing arm. Thankfully no one was hurt.
