Amtrack Train Hits SUV In Fayetteville

Authorities say two people in North Carolina were injured after their sports utility vehicle got stuck on the tracks and was hit by a passenger train.

Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that five people were inside the SUV when it got stuck on the tracks in a construction zone in Fayetteville.

Four people had gotten out and were trying to move the vehicle when the Amtrak Train hit it at about 9:30 p.m. Friday.

The train dragged the vehicle about 350 feet down the tracks before stopping.

Authorities say 15-year-old girl still inside the SUV suffered minor injuries.

The teen's mother broke several ribs and was taken to a hospital. No one on the train was injured.
