Two vehicle wrecks occurred within approximately a mile of each other on Highway 31 between the Atmore Country Club and Industrial Drive.
The first wreck involved a Superior Ready Mix dump truck at approximately 8:37 a.m. Oct. 14, according to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.
The wreck caused a road closure, and both lanes of Highway 31 at the 39-mile marker were blocked for more than three hours.
A minor injury was reported from the first wreck.
The second wreck involved a CSX train and a semi-truck.
The semi, which was an empty peanut truck, was parked at the railroad crossing at Industrial Drive when a train hit the back-end of the truck, causing the crossing arm to be destroyed.
The first and second wrecks are under investigation by ALEA and CSX officials, respectively.
