The train was headed northbound when it collided with a car leaving at least one person deceased according to an officer with the Gwinnett County Police Department.

No other details have been provided at this time as the investigation is ongoing.

The only railroad crossing currently open in downtown Buford is where East Main Street and Waterworks Road goes across. There is another train that isn’t involved in the wreck blocking the tracks the rest of the way through downtown Buford.

There is no word on when the wreckage will be cleared and the crossing at Shadburn Ferry Road will reopen.
