Georgia and Florida Fatal Accidents

Interstate 85, a truck accident south-west of Atlanta, leaves one person dead Thursday.

Police say the driver of a tractor trailer was killed when his truck hit a van, and then crashed into the bridge support in the center median of interstate.

All four northbound lanes were shut down.

Engineers are checking the bridge for possible structural damage. No other injuries were reported.

A south Florida driver was killed this morning when his SUV was struck by a train.

Witnesses say the driver went around the railroad gates as they came down at the crossing.

The driver remained on the tracks as the train approached and struck the vehicle.

The accident is under investigation and the identity of the victim has not yet been released.
