NEW BUFFALO, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say the driver of a car survived after the vehicle was hit by an Amtrak train from Chicago in southwestern Michigan.

TV stations WOOD and WZZM report the car was struck around 7:30 p.m. Monday in New Buffalo.

The car was destroyed, but WSBT-TV reports the driver was hospitalized and is expected to survive. No one else was in the car at the time.

Amtrak says there were 152 passengers on the Grand Rapids-bound train and no one aboard the train was injured. The train was delayed getting to its destination as authorities investigated at the scene, about 100 miles southwest of Grand Rapids.
