SKIPPERS, Va. (AP) – The owner of a company whose tractor-trailer was hit by an Amtrak train in Virginia says the intersection where the crash occurred is a dangerous one.
Linda Driver, owner of Driver Trucking Inc., said Ronnie Allen was waiting to turn at the intersection before the train smashed into his truck Thursday, splitting the trailer in two and leaving the driver with minor injuries.
No passengers or crew members were hurt.
Driver said Allen has commented before that the intersection is a bad place. She says he’s been working for her company for two years and took that same route several times a day.
A spokeswoman for Virginia State Police, which is handling the investigation, did not respond to multiple requests for comment Thursday.
