Train Hits SUV

Sheriff’s deputies in Scott County are looking for a woman who fled after her SUV was struck by a train. Deputy Robert Tackett says that the driver was apparently not injured in the incident Wednesday afternoon. The woman stopped too close to the tracks along Paynes Depot Road and a passing train clipped her sport utility vehicle. Witnesses told investigators the woman jumped out of the SUV and ran, getting into a car with another person, who then drove her away. In the long traffic backup that resulted, another driver hit the accelerator instead of the brakes and his car struck a grocery store. There were no injuries. Deputies say the SUV driver could face charges when she is located.
