Bad Decision!

Bad Decision!

I was passing by this location the morning of June 28, 2008 just moments after this accident and took a few shots. What I didn’t know then but thanks to what I believe to be a reliable source, Andrew Reams http://www.flickr.com/photos/dieselducy/ , a truck driver (a smarter driver) who delivers to the GP paper mill that the truck was pulling out of, is that the driver of this truck thought he could beat the train…BAD DECISION! The driver had minor injuries…he was very lucky!

Train Hits Tractor Trailer

Train Hits Tractor Trailer

Around 9:00 this morning, June 28, 2008, an eastbound CSX coal train collided with a tractor-trailer that was pulling out of Georgia Pacific Paper mill in Big Island; Amherst County, Virginia…U.S. rout 501. The truck, with its lone occupant was pushed proximally two hundred yards on the tracks before the train came to a complete stop.

No one on the train was injured and the driver of the truck sustained, what appeared to be, minor head injuries. Members of the Big Island rescue squad who happened by near the time of the accident immediately saw to the truck drivers needs until the ambulance arrived shortly after.
