Several emergency personnel units were on scene in Hewlett Wednesday morning as a Long Island Rail Road train struck a vehicle at the crossing at West Broadway and Hewlett Plaza.
According to MTA spokesperson Sam Zambuto, the incident occurred around 9:50 a.m. and involved a Toyota Rav 4.
The SUV, driven by a 55-year-old woman, was stopped on the tracks and unable to move from the crossing. The train struck the vehicle, "causing minimal damage to the car and no damage to the train or tracks."
"There were no reported injuries," Zambuto said. "Also, based on the MTA Police preliminary investigation, the crossing gates appeared to have been operating as intended and were in the down position for the approaching train. The driver was issued a summons for obstructing the crossing."
The train, which was operating on the Far Rockaway line, was delayed for approximately 90 minutes.
Nassau County Police, MTA Police and New York State Troopers were at the scene.
