SUV Hit By A train

(Rathdrum, ID) – [AP] A train smashed into an off-roading sport utility vehicle east of Rathdrum, ID flipping the SUV and ejecting the driver.  BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas says the train was heading from Chicago to Seattle yesterday when the SUV tried to cross the train tracks even though there was no railroad crossing in the area.  The driver, from Post Falls, was airlifted to a hospital with what appeared to be internal injuries.  An investigation into the incident is still underway.
