FENTON, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities say no one was injured after a car got stuck on the railroad tracks and was hit by a train. 

It happened about 7:15 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 14 in Fenton. 

The Fenton Police Chief said an elderly couple was eastbound on Silver Lake Road when the car slid into a curb and became disabled on the tracks.

The couple tried to move the car, but couldn’t. They called a tow truck and the tow company called police.

By the time police arrived, the car had been hit by an eastbound C&N Railroad train.

No one was injured. 

The train was blocking the railroad crossing at N. Leroy Street, Silver Lake Road, N. Leman Street, Adelaide and Beach Street for more than two hours. All railroad crossings are now open.
