It was a CIRCUS: Ringling Bros. train crashes in Nottoway Co.

The circus “came to town” the hard way this week.

A Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey train collided Monday with a tractor-trailer, which had become stuck on railroad tracks at a private crossing in the western part of Nottoway County.

Monday’s accident occurred at 1:10 p.m. just off the 4400 block of West Patrick Henry Highway (U. S. 360) near Burkeville. The private crossing is located about a quarter mile east of the Jennings Ordinary Road crossing.
