A Metro-North train collided with SUV that drove onto tracks in Beacon Falls Thursday afternoon, leaving one man hospitalized.
At 3:07 p.m., Beacon Hose Fire Co. received a call that an SUV had either backed up or drove onto train tracks near the Beacon Falls platform, said Jeremy Rodorigo, fire department spokesman.
He said the train was carrying about 30 people - none of them were hurt - and that it was slowing to a stop when the accident occurred. A male driver of the SUV was the only person injured, and the extent of his injuries was unknown, though they appeared non-life-threatening, Rodorigo said.
A crane was brought in to remove the vehicle.
An investigation is being handled by Metro North Railroad Police.
