No injuries were reported after a train struck a vehicle on the Norfolk Southern train tracks on Main Street Tuesday.
At 12:22 p.m., a Ford Focus driven by Victoria Campbell, of Spring City, was struck by an eastbound train hauling 50 cars of stone, according to Royersford Acting Chief of Police Tom Nerlinger.
Campbell told police that as she was approaching the crossing, she saw a train and her vehicle became pinned under the safety gates of the train.
Campbell was unable to pack up or move forward, possibly due to the snow-covered road, police said. Campbell exited her vehicle.
The train crew saw Campbell's vehicle and applied emergency breaks, but was unable to stop and struck the left front of the vehicle.
The impact pushed the car sideway into the railroad gate mount and pinned it underneath.
No one on the train was injured, and there was minimal damage to the locomotive, police say.
Royersford Police were assisted by Norfolk Southern personnel and Norfolk Southern Police Department, as well as Linfield and Liberty (Spring City) Fire Police.
