Driver Swerves for Deer Before Train Hits Car

Associated Press - October 11, 2016 10:51 am

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a central Kansas police chief was injured after an unoccupied police car struck him.

Authorities say a Kansas driver had to flee from an approaching train after he swerved to avoid two deer and became stuck on a stretch of railroad tracks.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says the 18-year-old driver initially attempted to drive his car down the tracks Sunday night. But he became high-centered about two miles northeast of Augusta and wasn’t able to continue.
He bailed when he saw the train coming.

No one was hurt when the train crashed into the car.
