Second car vs. train accident in same S. Oklahoma City intersection in less than year
OKLAHOMA CITY – Crews are cleaning up after a train collided with a car in southeast Oklahoma City early Thursday morning.
Officials said the accident happened just after 2:30 a.m. near S.E. 59th St. and the I-35 Service Rd.
Authorities said a car was exiting at 51st St. where the road goes underneath I-35.
Police said the driver was going too fast, missed the curve, drove onto the train tracks and crashed into a barrier.
Then a train going about one mile per hour hit the car.
No one was injured and the train was not damaged.
A similar accident happened in this same spot last July.
