Two women were injured in a train accident in Indiana.
According to officials with the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department, a train struck a car at a railroad crossing northwest of Indianapolis near Jamestown on the Boone-Hendricks County line. Police say 80 year-old Alice M. Schooler was driving a Chevrolet Impala that crossed the tracks into the path of a 22-car CSX train that was hauling steel.
Witnesses reported hearing the train’s conductor sound a horn as it approached the crossing. Video from the train’s engine showed the passenger vehicle crossing the tracks without slowing.
Schooler and a passenger in her car, 72 year-old Patricia A. Manion, were injured in the accident. They were transported by medical helicopter to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Indianapolis. No information on the nature or extent of their injuries was available.
