Traffic accident involving a vehicle and a train caused delay in downtown Huntsville

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. —  The Huntsville Police Department had to warn drivers to avoid the Church Street area in downtown Huntsville Friday.

An accident between a vehicle and a train was reported on the road between Dallas Avenue and Cleveland Avenue. Huntsville police say the driver was attempting to make a U-turn on the tracks when the train struck the vehicle.

Authorities say the driver has non-life threatening injuries.

Our Redstone Federal Credit Union Downtown Camera showed where the train had come to a halt.

The tracks have since been cleared.
