Train and truck collide

On Thursday, April 1, a Deep South Farm truck hauling farm chemicals to a local farmer and a Norfolk Southern train collided at the Buck Head Road railroad crossing in Pine Grove. Luckily the driver of the truck only received minor injuries as a result of the accident. It was unclear what type of chemicals (shown spilling above) were on the truck, but a clean up crew worked late into the afternoon cleaning up the area around the scene of the accident. The train stopped about a half mile from the intial accident. The News-Banner contacted the Reidsville Post of the Georgia State Patrol on Monday for more information on the accident, but the accident report was not available at that time.
