Car on the tracks

Emergency personnel were called to the scene of a car stuck on the railroad tracks near the entrance to Columbia River Park shortly after 4 p.m. today. According to Columbia Borough Police, the driver erroneously drove the car up the runway between the sets of tracks after suffering a medical incident that caused him to veer off the road at the railroad crossing on Route 441. After the car traveled a short distance, the front passenger-side tire crossed one of the rails, snagging the vehicle. The driver was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The car was freed and removed by Midway Collision Shop.
