My husband told me a good friend of his/ truck driver was killed last night in Alabama and the town he thought it was in dont come up with any searches and kept bring up this town so I wonder if this is the right town. Happened at a Car plant he was unloading parked on railroad tracks and a train struck and killed him while he was asleep in the back. TY

Since: Jul 10

I haven't heard of it. There is a Kia plant with train tracks near it in West Point GA.

The local papers would be the OAnews or Valley times.

By the way, my mom grew up in Granite City

Yes, I have visited Granite City. I used to go through there just about every weekend when I lived in a little town, Ashland near jacksonville, about an hour north. We used to go to St Louis and stop at Busy Bee bakery in Madison and then go on to Granite city.
I will keep an eye out for more info and post if I find any. I ddi hear of a wreck involving a big rig but from what I understand, it was the teen in the car who got killed as the trucker ran the car off the road/
