At 10:00 PM on Oct 11, 2016 a train, traveling westbound, was stuck by a 2 door car causing extensive damage to the vehicle and a minor injury to the lone occupant. The 42 year old driver had stopped for the train and then for reasons unknown he drove into the train as it was passing by in front of him. The male was taken to the hospital with minor head injuries as police continue to investigate. The accident occurred at the crossing located at Ave W south and Appleby drive. Traffic will be diverted from that crossing until the police have completed the investigation so we are asking motorists to avoid the area if possible.
