No One Hurt When Train Strikes Car in Tuscaloosa Sunday Night
No one was injured when a train struck a vehicle which was stopped on railroad tracks in Tuscaloosa Sunday night.
Witnesses took to social media to post photos and videos of the aftermath of the collision, which reportedly took place near Peco Food, Inc.
Stephanie Taylor, a spokesperson for the Tuscaloosa Police Department, said a 64-year-old Tuscaloosa woman driving a Nissan Altima became stuck on the tracks at 32nd Street and Exchange Avenue north of Investigator Dornell Cousette Street.
Taylor said a Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's deputy stopped to assist her, but before a tow truck arrived to get the vehicle loose, an oncoming train rolled down the track and was not able to stop before crashing into the car.
Taylor said the driver and her passenger or passengers were outside of and away from the vehicle when it was struck.
No one was injured, but the vehicle sustained extensive damage.
