Train, car collide in Beacon Falls


One person was injured when a train hit a vehicle on railroad tracks in Beacon Falls Thursday afternoon.

Metro North officials said the crash occurred at the Beacon Falls Train Station, just north of the platform around 3:10 p.m.

Officials said they were investigating whether slippery conditions were to blame but are unable to speak with the unidentified driver until he recovers from injuries he sustained in the crash.

Buses were brought in to transport the 30 or so passengers on the train.
