Atlas Van Lines Railroad Crossing Accident

A loaded Atlas Van Lines tractor-trailer was sliced in two by a CSX train in Chester, VA yesterday. The moving company tractor-trailer got stuck and the CSX train loaded with shipping containers rounded a bend and wasn’t able to stop in time. It plowed into the truck and sliced it in two leaving heaps of smashed furniture and household items scattered along the tracks (image below).

Let’s hope that the owners of the goods in transit are adequately insured.

Fortunately no one was hurt in the collision but in future maybe Atlas should instruct their drivers in basic railroad crossing safety.

The image below is the crossing before the accident.
