Parts Of Mike Padgett Highway Remain Closed After Train Derailment

Posted: Updated:
Richmond County, GA -

If you are headed out the door this morning, parts of a major roadway are closed this morning after a train derailment. 

It happened yesterday on Mike Padgett Highway near Mccombs Road, that's near the Richmond and Burke County lines. 

Authorities say the driver of an 18 wheeler lost control of the vehicle and struck the train causing one of the derailed cars to hit another pick-up truck. The driver somehow managed to jump out the 18-wheeler before it hit.  The drivers of both trucks were treated for injuries.
