A steel beam crashed through the train windshield, just missing the engineer, during a Wednesday afternoon collision with an 18-wheeler, Rome police said.

No one was injured in the crash that happened about 2:45 p.m. on Second Avenue, near Riverbend Drive. It closed the road and snarled traffic, sending vehicles onto Turner McCall Boulevard.

An Averitt Express transfer truck driven by William Kopeck, 72, of Marietta, was stopped at the red light at Riverbend Drive and Second Avenue. Kopeck’s truck straddled the railroad track, Rome Police Office Hank Jackson said. ∞∞∞∞∞ SEE MORE ∞∞∞∞∞
