Woman survives train collision

A woman whose car was rear-ended by a train near Wadena, Minn., survived the incident with no major injuries Saturday.

The Otter Tail County's sheriff's office said the 28-year-old woman was struck from behind by a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train while she was driving alone at 4:30 a.m., the Associated Press said.

The train crew said they saw the car and applied their brakes, but a collision was unavoidable, said the Fergus Falls Daily Journal.

The car was severely damaged, making firefighters ply the woman out. She was taken to the hospital, but released following an evaluation, said the Associated Press.
