PERRYVILLE, Md. (AP) - Cecil County authorities say a woman was flown to a Baltimore hospital after her car slid down an icy hill and into a moving freight train.

The sheriff’s office says the crash occurred at a railroad crossing on Jackson Station Road in Perryville on Thursday morning. Officials say the woman lost control of the car and slid into the rail crossing arm and the front of the train. They say the engineer saw the car coming, but he couldn’t stop the half-mile long, 2,000 ton train in time.

Officials say the woman was flown to Shock Trauma in Baltimore, but there’s no word on her condition.
