EUGENE, Ore. — Emergency crews on the scene of an accident involving a train and a car.
The crash happened along Highway 99 just south of Beltline Highway Monday afternoon. Investigators told KEZI 9 News that the train actually backed into the car as the driver was traveling across the tracks. The train was moving at a very low speed, so the damage done was minimal. Everyone in the car got out safely after the accident.
Witnesses say it was still a nerve-racking experience to watch the situation unfold.
There is no major impact on traffic right now, but railroad crews on the scene say this accident could actually push their work back a month.
There’s no word yet on when the accident will be cleared or when the train will be allowed to move along.
