BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A man has been hurt after a freight train collided with his vehicle at a railroad crossing in Mississippi.

Biloxi Police Maj. Chris De Back says it happened Wednesday in Biloxi. He says the victim is in his 80s and he went to cross the railroad tracks and failed to stop for the train. De Back says as he continued, the train’s conductor was unable to stop and the vehicles collided.

The car was pushed about 25 yards (23 meters) east of the intersection before coming to a stop.

De Back says the man, the only person in the car, was taken to an area hospital for treatment. The extent of his injuries was not disclosed.

No other injuries were reported.

The crash remains under investigation.
