The driver of a tractor-trailer that was struck by an Amtrak train Tuesday has been charged with reckless driving.
Police said Michael A. Douberly, 21, of Moseley failed to get across the crossing before his vehicle was hit by the southbound train.
The crash occurred about 9 a.m. near the Woodford Post Office, said Caroline County Sheriff Tony Lippa.
Train traffic was delayed for about four hours while cleanup crews removed debris and inspected the tracks for damage, but no vehicle traffic was affected, Lippa said.
The train had 82 passengers and was headed toward Newport News from Boston, said Amtrak spokeswoman Christina Leeds.
No one was injured.
She said the train continued on to Richmond, where passengers were given alternate transportation.
