One Dead In Glade Spring Truck-Train Crash
A flatbed tractor-trailer truck was struck by a Norfolk Southern freight train about 4:45 Wednesday afternoon in Washington County Virginia. The driver of the rig was apparently moving equipment near the town square in Glade Spring when the fatal crash occurred. The crash caused the tractor-trailer rig to burst into flames when the diesel tanks on the vehicle ignited. The truck was totally involved in flame by the time volunteer fire units from Glade Spring and Meadowview arrived at the scene. There was initial concern that some of the train cars would also burn. The body of the victim was to be sent to Roanoke for positive identification and autopsy. Virginia State Police, Washington County Virginia Sheriff's Deputies and Glade Town Officers are still investigating the incident along with Norfolk Southern. No charges have been filed but the investigation is still underway. No firefighters or nearby residents reported any injuries as a result of the accident.(CS)
