A 51-year-old woman and her 4-year-old granddaughter suffered minor injuries when the woman's car was struck by a train at a crossing at Gwynnbrook Drive near Bonita Avenue, Baltimore County police reported.
Sarra Taub, of the 1300 block of Kingsbury Road in Owings Mills, was treated and released from the Shock-Trauma Unit in Baltimore yesterday, police said.
Briana Agatstein, the granddaughter, was treated at Sinai Hospital and released, police said.
Police said Taub was driving a late-model Cadillac west on Gwynnbrook Road around 3:40 p.m. when she stopped on the tracks, despite warning lights signaling the approach of a northbound CSX engine.
As the engine approached the crossing, the engineer, William Baugher, of Littlestown, Pa., sounded a warning and applied the brakes, police said. Taub backed up but the train struck the left front of the car, knocking it off the crossing.
