Woman injured after train collides with Colorado police car: Officials


A 20-year-old woman in Colorado suffered serious injuries after police put her in a parked cruiser that was hit by a train in a town near Denver, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

The incident occurred just after 7:30 p.m. Friday when a Platteville, Colorado, police officer stopped a woman in her car north of Platteville after a traffic incident involving a firearm was reported earlier in the day in the neighboring town of Fort Lupton, per a press release from the CBI, one of several agencies investigating the incident. The woman stopped her car just past the track and the officer parked the patrol car behind her on the track, the CBI said.
