A woman whose car was hit by a train at a Bryan railroad crossing has been cited for driving without a valid license after she and her child escaped from the car.
Monday morning at 8:15 a.m. Bryan police was called to an accident involving a train in the 300 block of Dodge.
There they found a 2004 Toyota Rav4 that had been hit by the train.
Investigators determined that the Toyota had been going East in the 300 block of West Dodge when it stopped on the railroad tracks.
Police say the vehicle had only the front portion on the tracks and was turned perpendicular to its line of travel and knocked off the tracks and was not pushed down the tracks.
The driver, identified as a 39-year-old Bryan woman, saw the Union Pacific train coming and got out, attempting to pull a 4-year-old child free when the vehicle was hit.
The woman and child were taken to CHI St. Joseph Hospital where they were both treated and released.
The driver was issued a citation for no valid driver’s license and stopping where prohibited.
