At 11:15 a.m. Friday in downtown Statham, a CSX train slammed into a loaded 18-wheeler flat-bed truck carrying antique cars, according to Barrow County Sheriff Jud Smith.
No one was injured, but the incident occurred at the city's main intersection of Jefferson Road and Hwy. 8, creating a major traffic problem downtown.
"The train was heading eastbound toward Athens and hit the truck which was stuck on tracks," Smith said. "It dragged the truck several hundred feet."
CSX Railway has been notified, and deputies are assisting the Statham Police Department in diverting traffic.
Also at the scene is Barrow County Emergency Services, the sheriff said.
