Train hits family vehicle in Fort Worth

Posted: Updated:

A family of five was hurt when a train hit an SUV in Fort Worth.

It happened just before 8 a.m. Thursday on Biddeson Street, southeast of the Texas Christian University campus.

Fort Worth police said the lights at the train crossing were flashing and the crossing arms were on their way down when the driver tried to cross the tracks.

The train was going about 25 miles per hour when it hit the silver SUV. The vehicle was pushed about 200 feet down the tracks and landed upside down.

Thankfully no one was seriously hurt. A woman and her three children were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. Her husband was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Police remind drivers to use extreme caution when crossing the tracks because trains are often moving much faster than they appear.
