Woman injured after train collides with Colorado police car: Officials

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

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

Two Fort Lupton police officers arrived at the scene to conduct a search of the vehicle. They detained the woman on suspicion of felony menacing and placed her in the Platteville patrol car parked on the tracks, according to CBI’s release.
