A south Georgia boy takes his mother's car for a joy ride and crashes it into a ditch causing a train to run over it.

15-year-old James Harrell totaled his mother's Surburban on Tuesday night (1-4). Our partners at say Harrell took a turn too sharp causing the vehicle to veer off into a ditch with the back end just over railroad tracks. The CSX engineer says he rounded a curve and spotted the vehicle just ahead and had no chance to stop, causing the train to crash into the vehicle. It appears the vehicle was thrown against the concrete.

No one was hurt.

    Race? Really? That's the excuse you are suggesting. I do not think so. I see just as many black people as I do white people, and also any other race, make stupid decisions. So please, if you are going to make a comment or reasoning for this decision atleast sound like you are human. The color of the individual had nothing to do with the decision of taking the vehicle or not. You are a moron!
