Trains blocking intersections in Birmingham causing traffic headaches

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – As the investigation into Tuesday night’s train fire in southwest Birmingham continues, people in the area say they’re frustrated as trains will often park, leaving some intersections blocked, for what seems like weeks at a time.

“It is very inconvenient,” says Victoria Gay, a community member frustrated by the train traffic. “It holds everyone up, as you can see everyone is turning around.”
