GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - Two men suffered only minor injuries when the SUV they were in was struck by a freight train north of Fort Lupton.

Fort Lupton Police Chief Ken Poncelow tells The Greeley Tribune (http://goo.gl/ALfSrn ) the vehicle was hit by a Union Pacific train Friday morning after the driver ran a stop sign. The SUV was hit on the driver’s side, then spun around and rolled down a hill.

Poncelow says the men, who had to be extracted, were lucky enough to suffer only minor injuries. He added, “They need to buy a lottery ticket today.”

The train, which was pulling empty cars, did not derail.
