ASHTABULA

Ohio police say a driver was injured when his vehicle went through a railroad crossing arm and hit an Amtrak train traveling in Northeastern Ohio.

Sgt. Ron Bornino of the Ohio State Highway Patrol says 58-year-old Murphy West Jr. of Ashtabula was taken to a hospital in Geneva and transferred to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland after the Sunday crash.

A nursing supervisor at the hospital said West was in fair condition Sunday.

Trooper Damion Assink said the car was heading north on state Route 45 near Saybrook Township about 3 a.m. when it went through the crossing arm as the train was heading west. The township is near Ashtabula, which is about 55 miles east of Cleveland.

The patrol is continuing to investigate the accident.

Amtrak had no immediate details.
