Four individuals riding in a Cadillac on Wednesday afternoon on Skyline Road were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries after the car hit a moving freight train.
Crews responded to the scene after receiving calls about a train and car collision. When officials arrived, the four people who were in the car were standing outside of the car walking around. They were able to speak and respond to teams.
The Car’s passengers were headed toward Highway 72 when they stopped before the tracks as a Northfolk Southern Train Passed by. The car then inched forward, striking the side of the train. Although the train and its occupants suffered no damage, the Cadillac was practically destroyed by the collision.
Officials have not yet confirmed if alcohol or drugs were contributing factors to the accident.
