OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Authorities in Oklahoma City say a vehicle that tried to go around a railroad crossing barrier has been struck by an oncoming freight train.

Television station KWTV reports that emergency crews responded to Sunday afternoon’s crash in northwest Oklahoma City.

Investigators say one vehicle tried to go around crossing barriers when it was hit by the train. The collision caused the car to spin and hit two vehicles on the other side of the tracks.

The driver of the car that ran the barrier suffered minor injuries and was arrested at the scene for driving under the influence. The driver has not yet been identified.

Two passengers inside the car that was hit by the train were transported by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries. No one else was injured.
