Train, car collide in Lee County

LEE CO., GA (WALB) - The Georgia State Patrol says a Norfolk Southern train and a vehicle collided just north of Leesburg, around 6:45 Tuesday morning.

A woman was driving over the tracks on Oakhill Dairy Road in Lee County, heading toward US 19, when the train clipped the rear end end of the woman's car.

GSP says the woman is okay, and that heavy rain may have contributed to the accident.

The car was moved, and the train resumed its route.
