HOLDREGE, Neb. (AP) - A woman and baby were sent to a hospital after a locomotive struck the car they were in at a crossing in south-central Nebraska.

The accident occurred Monday, about four miles southwest of Holdrege in Phelps County.

Trooper Troy Goodschmidt with the Nebraska State Patrol told station KHGI (https://bit.ly/1P5BPfe ) that the man driving the car says he didn’t see the train in time. The man says he took for granted that not many trains ran through the area.

The man wasn’t injured when the westbound train’s lead locomotive hit the front of the car. The woman and child apparently received only minor injuries.
