BRAINTREE (CBS) — A commuter train hit an SUV crossing the tracks in Braintree Monday evening.

It happened just before 6 p.m. at the Grove Street crossing.

Witnesses told police the driver, an unidentified woman, went around the barrier lowered for the train and got stuck on the tracks. When the train hit she was thrown from the SUV into the woods.

No one was hurt onboard the train.

The driver was alert and conscious when she was taken to the hospital.

    I wonder what this moron was thinking as the train knocked her into the woods? She tried to beat the train, was probably in the midst of a really
    important conversation on her cellphone while finishing a sandwich.
    Simply one more individual who should not be driving………..anything.
