DELTA TOWNSHIP, Mich., Feb. 17 (UPI) -- An Amtrak train collided with a car west of Lansing, Mich., killing the car's driver, authorities said.
John Clark, Delta Township fire chief, said the collision occurred about 9:30 p.m. Thursday near Millett Highway and Lansing Road, the Lansing State Journal reported.
The car's driver was believed to be its only occupant, Clark said.
The cause of the crash was undetermined, Clark said. The crossing has gates and flashing lights but it was unclear whether they were functioning at the time of the collision, he said.
A female passenger on the train was treated for an unknown illness or injury and released.
About 70 of the 120 passengers on the Chicago-Port Huron train were heading to East Lansing and, after the crash, they were taken there by Waverly school district buses. The remaining 50 passengers stayed on the train while it was delayed, Clark said.
