Firefighters say a train carrying chemicals collided with a car in suburban Washington but did not spill any of its cargo.

Prince George’s County fire officials said the collision occurred about 6:15 a.m. Sunday in Beltsville between a 70-car CSX freight train and a car. They said the tracks are below street level and the unidentified driver was injured when his car left the road and went down an embankment.

The driver was able to escape the car before the train struck and was reported in serious condition at a local hospital, where he was treated for trauma to the upper body.

Police are investigating the crash.
