A woman was hospitalized Friday morning after a car and train collided in Ann Arbor Township, firefighters said.
Ann Arbor Township Fire Capt. Doug Eder said the woman’s compact car was knocked or dragged away from the intersection in the crash and was in a ditch when firefighters arrived.
She was pinned in the car wreckage. Firefighters freed her, and Huron Valley Ambulance paramedics took her to the University of Michigan Hospital.
The crash, which was reported about 6 a.m., closed Pontiac Trail between Warren and Dhu Varren roads for more than an hour as police investigated. The road was reopened shortly before 7:30.
Eder said the area where the crash occurred is a train switching area. The railroad crossing has no gate, but does have a signal, he said.
No further information about the crash was immediately available.
