Car vs. train

OKLAHOMA CITY – A driver has only minor injuries after a car vs. train accident overnight Thursday.

A train collided with the car parked on the tracks near S.E. 51st St. and I-35 just after midnight.

Officials are still investigating how the car ended up on the tracks in the first place.

Authorities said it could be alcohol-related.
