Grand Island train crossing remains closed after accident
A railroad crossing in Grand Island is expected to remain closed until at least Monday afternoon, possibly into Tuesday after a train/car collision Sunday.
The accident happened just before 2:00 Sunday afternoon at the intersection of Third Street and Broadwell Avenue.
Police say a vehicle stalled on the tracks and the driver was unable to move the car.
A train hit the car pushing it into the crossing arm.
The driver of the vehicle was uninjured but the car is a total loss.
Police say damage to the train is estimated at $30,000, and to the crossing arm and brace; $50,000.
Crews are expected to repair that crossing arm later Monday. But until the repair is complete that intersection will remain closed.
