YARMOUTH (CBS) – An elderly driver crashed her car into a moving train on the Cape Tuesday morning.

Fortunately for her, the train was moving only one mile an hour.

The 76-year-old woman was apparently blinded by the sun in her eyes as she approached the tracks on West Yarmouth Road around 11:30 a.m.

Her Subaru slammed into the third car of a slow-moving freight train.

She was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The front end of her car was heavily damaged.
