Driver Survives Collision With Train

Early Tuesday night, a train hit a car in Downtown Gladewater.

It happened around 7:30 near the intersection of West Pacific Avenue and Ferry Avenue.

The train, traveling East, slammed into the Lincoln Town Car; shearing off the trunk.

Officials say they were surprised when they approached the wreckage because the driver was alert and talking, apparently okay.

The train rolled to a stop after the collision, blocking off many sidestreets and blocking off traffic for several hours.

The intersection was not equiped with railroad crossing arms.
