ACTON, Mass. (AP) - Police say a collision between a car and an MBTA commuter rail train in Acton has injured a woman in the car, which was heavily damaged.

Acton Deputy Police Chief Richard Burrows tells the Lowell Sun that police were called to the intersection where the train tracks cross Route 111 in West Acton at about 7:45 p.m. Monday

MBTA transit police said a 63-year-old woman from Stowe was driving a 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander westbound when her car was struck on the track by an inbound Fitchburg line train. Police said she was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No other injuries were reported.

The MBTA police said about 25 passengers were on the train. Passengers were being bused around the accident.

Police said the circumstances are under investigation.

Acton is about 25 miles northwest of Boston.
