A February 20 collision near Savannah, Georgia between a dump truck and two trains claimed the life of the dump truck driver. The collision occurred near the entrance to the City of Savannah’s water treatment plant in Port Wentworth, Georgia. The driver of the dump truck, Solomon Mainer, worked for a contractor removing sediment from the ponds at the treatment plant. A CSX freight train struck Mr. Mainer’s truck at the crossing. The crossing has no protective gates. The collision with the CSX train threw the dump truck into the path of an Amtrak train, which then struck the truck. The collision with the two trains broke the truck apart, causing vehicle parts to strike at least one other vehicle. Mr. Mainer tragically died at the scene of the collision.
