GREENWOOD, Ind. – A crash involving a train and a vehicle in Greenwood sent an elderly woman to the hospital Monday afternoon, according to fire officials. It was the second train crash of the day in the city.

The crash happened on County Line Road, near Janet Drive, east of Madison Avenue.

Authorities believe the woman drove into the moving train. She was not entrapped, but officials say she was transported to a local hospital to be treated for possible broken bones and to be checked for internal injuries.

County Line Road was closed in the area for the investigation. It reopened around 6:45 p.m.

However, that wasn’t the only problem for the evening. Just after 7:30 p.m., police in Greenwood reported a third incident involving a train and a car–this one at the same Janet Drive and County Line Road crossing as the second one. Police said they were unaware of any serious injuries associated with the third crash.
