A woman suffered no major injuries Tuesday evening after a train hit her vehicle at the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad crossing on West Dickson Street near George’s Majestic Lounge.

According to reports, Angela Lamoureux, 29, was driving alone in a Nissan Xterra shortly before 6 p.m. when her vehicle was broadsided by the train. Lamoureux, who was cited in connection with careless driving, reportedly did not hear the train as it approached the crossing.

Witnesses said the vehicle was dragged about 30 feet north of Dickson Street and destroyed several sections of guard fencing before the train came to a stop.

KNWA reports the accident was the third crash in 15 years at that crossing.
