Woman dies when ATV hits train in Effingham

EFFINGHAM, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a 32-year-old passenger on an all-terrain vehicle has been killed after it crashed into a train.

Investigators say the ATV’s driver said he was driving down a road near Effingham around 3:45 p.m. Sunday when he approached a crossing with no warning signals and didn’t see the train until it was too late.

The coroner’s office says the ATV driver tried to swerve to miss the train, but the vehicle flipped, ejecting the driver, but putting his wife, Tanya Clemons, in the train’s path. She died at the scene.

Florence County deputies are investigating the incident.
