Train slams into vehicle in Redding; One dead

Posted: Updated:

Police are investigating whether speeding was a factor in a deadly crash between a Metro-North train and a car.

The crash was reported in Redding around 1 p.m. Sunday.

According to the News-Times of Danbury, three people needed to be removed from the vehicle while one person was found on the ground outside of it.

All four were brought to a local hospital where one died a short time later.

The identities of those involved have not been released.

A Mrto-North spokesperson said the railroad crossing had flashing lights to indicate an oncoming train, and said they were on and working at the time of the crash.
