Two Injured After Train Hits Car

A mother and her two-year-old daughter have been seriously injured after their car collides with a train.  Deputy Tracy Suitt with the Pima County Sheriff’s Office says a 27-year-old woman drove her car up  onto the railroad tracks where it became stuck.  While the car was stuck on the tracks, an eastbound   Union Pacific train was approaching.  The engineer sounded his horn and tried to stop but was unable to avoid a collision.  The train collided with the passenger side of the car and pushed it off the tracks.  The two were transported to a trauma center where the child is listed in critical condition and the mother is listed in serious condition.   The mother showed no obvious signs of impairment.  Suitt says it’s possible she suffered a medical condition because “it was just pretty strange that the vehicle left the roadway, there were no turns, the vehicle just went straight off the roadway and up into the embankment.”  He adds if you find yourself in a situation where your car is stuck on train tracks, do whatever you can to get out of the vehicle as quickly as possible and make sure your passengers are out of the car as well. — Kris Dugan...
