According to WLOX, a car was hit by a train in Waveland early Tuesday morning.

Officers were called about a car being hit by a train around 2:07 a.m. When they arrived, they found a 2017 Hyundai in the woods near Favre Street and Central Avenue.

Officers found the driver, who was not from the area, somehow drove onto the tracks around the area of Coleman Avenue.

A CSX train was traveling westbound at the same time and hit the car in the area of Favre Street.

WLOX reports that the car was hit and then pushed over 30 yards into the wooded area on the north side of the railroad tracks.

The driver did not get injured in the wreck and police said no drugs or alcohol were involved.

Railroad traffic was shut down in the area for about two hours while the car was removed from the scene. Moss Towing had to use a Bobcat in order to remove the car due to the damage it received.
