MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) - Police in Mount Vernon, Wash., say a 24-year-old woman injured when her car was hit by a freight train is still being treated at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle but is expected to survive.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports (https://is.gd/Q43SIX) that Lt. Chris Cammock says the woman was leaving work Monday afternoon at a farm in the south Mount Vernon area and apparently crossed the track in front of the northbound train. The train pushed her Mercedes Benz about 100 feet down the tracks and into a field.

The train hit the car on the passenger side. The woman was alone in the vehicle.
