STAMFORD, Conn. – A New Canaan-bound train struck a Jeep Monday morning around 10:15 a.m. at an unprotected railroad crossing in Stamford, according to the Connecticut Post

Metro-North trains on the New Haven Line’s New Canaan Branch were temporarily replaced with bus service due to mechanical difficulties, the railroad announced.  

The Jeep’s driver, an unidentified 19-year-old, was driving toward Hope Street on Riverbend Drive South – located in the Riverbend office complex – when the 10:02 a.m. train from Stamford to New Canaan clipped the vehicle, the report said.  The Jeep was turned south after the accident with heavy damage to its rear, the Connecticut Post reported.

The driver was transported to Stamford Hospital with a shoulder injury, the report said.

Bus service on the New Canaan Branch line replaced trains for around two hours on Monday.
