A 51-year-old Hays woman was injured in car-train crash early Saturday morning.
The crash was reported at 6:42 a.m. in the 1100 block of 280th Avenue. Ellis County Sheriff Ed Harbin said the woman was driving eastbound on Old U.S. Highway 40. She drove through the ditch and hit some signposts before driving around the railroad crossing arms as a train was passing.
She was transported to a Wichita hospital, Harbin said. The woman’s name is not being released at this time.
