I Hear A Train A'coming
Hi, I'm your faithful Sand Mountain Photog blogger, and here is the news from the mountain. For the second time in just about three weeks a train and a tractor trailer collide on highway 75 in Albertville. Luckily, no one was hurt in the wreck. The odd thing about this happening yesterday is that the city council had just met earlier in the week and discussed this crossing. According to the State of Alabama, this is only the 227th most dangerous crossing in the state so nothing will be done about it. Right now, there are no flashing lights, no cross arms that come down to block traffic on this busy highway. Will this latest accident change any minds? Or, as usual, will someone have to die before any changes are made? Let us hope that city leaders will act quickly before something really bad happens here.
