Car trying to beat train gets knocked into police vehicle

Mississippi police say a woman is in the hospital after trying to beat a freight train across the track.

The 30-year-old woman's vehicle was hit, knocking it into a police SUV and a car that had been pulled over for a traffic stop.

Biloxi Police Lt. Christopher De Back says the car hit by the train rolled over, injuring the driver. He says the woman inside was treated and released after being extricated Tuesday evening. Nobody else was hurt.

De Back says the CSX train conductor sounded the horn, but the driver kept heading south toward the train tracks.
