Woman hurt in train-ATV wreck in southwestern Ill.

MITCHELL – Authorities say a woman was critically injured when a coal train hit an all-terrain vehicle that had gotten stuck on the railroad tracks in southwestern Illinois.

Madison County authorities say the woman injured in the accident Tuesday night in Mitchell was flown by helicopter to an unspecified hospital. Her medical status was not immediately clear Wednesday.

Police say the woman and a man were riding the ATV when the vehicle got stuck. The two were working to free the vehicle when the train approached, prompting the man to jump from the ATV to safety.
