NJ Transit train hits empty auto in Ho-Ho-Kus, causing delays

 

NJ Transit trains are on schedule again on the Main and Bergen County Line this morning after a train in Ho-Ho-Kus struck a stranded auto while an infant was being pulled from the car's back seat, officials said.

 

No one was injured, officials said.

 

The car became stuck on the tracks at 7 a.m. while U-turning at the Glenwood Road crossing, said Courtney Carroll, a NJ Transit spokeswoman. The driver jumped from the car and grabbed the infant just as the Hoboken-bound train -- breaking as it approached the station -- hit the rear of the vehicle.

 

"It clipped the car," Carroll said.

 

The driver and infant were treated and released from a nearby hospital.

 

The 125 rail passengers transfered to another train, and service on the Main and Bergen County Line ran 30 minutes behind schedule between 7 and 10 a.m., Carroll said.

Geez, what a smart idea to make a U-turn on a railroad crossing, very genius oh yes.

 

NOT!

 

Good thing the driver got out and grabbed the infant in time before the train hit.
