Truck grazed by train

PORT WENTWORTH, GA (WTOC) - A man is lucky to be alive this morning after a collision with a train. Port Wentworth Police and Georgia State Patrol responded to the tracks at Monteith Road, near Highway 30 around 11:30 last night.

They say a man was driving home from work when he looked up, saw the train, and skidded to a stop. The train hit the pickup, tearing off the front end. The man walked away without a scratch.

Investigators will be at the tracks today to determine whether the crossing arms worked properly.
