Family Hospitalized after Car is Hit By Train

Sunday, August 26, 2007

Two children and two adults are hospitalized Sunday night after their car stalled on a railroad track and got hit by a train.

The Amtrak passenger train hit the car Sunday afternoon near 10th and Kansas, just south of Hanford.

Police say the accident could have been a lot worse. But, the Amtrak engineer got word from an engineer going the other direction that the car was on the tracks.

The train slowed down, but it still hit the vehicle.

None of the train's passengers were injured, but they were delayed by about two hours.
