CLARK COUNTY — Ohio State Patrol Troopers responded to a train-and-car collision in Clark County over the weekend to find no one inside.
Crews were called to the 1200 block of Fletcher Pike at 6:30 p.m. Saturday after receiving reports that a train crashed into a car sitting on the tracks.
Video provided by OSHP shows troopers approaching the wreck on foot. When they arrived at the car they saw no one was inside.
A sergeant with Clark County Sheriff’s Office said that a car had broken down on the tracks, and a nearby driver helped the woman and her dogs out of the disabled car before it was struck by the train.
The car was pushed around 20 yards before the train could come to a stop, according to the sergeant.
No one was hurt in the collision and the train was not damaged, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol, who is handling the crash.
