Amtrak train collides with Holdrege woman’s vehicle in south central Nebraska
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A woman was sent to the hospital with neck injuries after a train collided with her car near Holdredge on Monday.
Around 11:00 a.m., an Amtrak train east of Holdredge struck a vehicle driven by Abigail Woosley, who failed to yield at R Road and Highway 6 intersection.
The train hit the front corner on the driver’s side of the vehicle, the Phelps County Sheriff’s Office said.
The impact caused the vehicle to collide a second time with the south side of the train, according to the sheriff’s office.
Woosley’s vehicle then rolled once before coming to a stop on its roof.
An unknown party took Woosley to a local hospital with reported neck injuries.
The sheriff’s office said Woosley was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash and was later issued a citation.
All 120 passengers on the train reported no injuries, according to the sheriff’s office.
Woosley’s vehicle was totaled, but there was only minor damage done to the Amtrak train.
