A Williamstown woman reportedly suffered non life-threatening injuries March 16 when her vehicle collided with a train in Richwood.
Melissa Hemingway, 44, drove her 1986 Buick Somerset approximately a half mile southbound on the tracks on Old Lexington Pike before colliding with an oncoming northbound Norfolk Southern train, according to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.  
The train, estimated to be traveling at 25 miles per hour, went into full emergency brake mode, but still pushed the car back 215 yards.  
Hemingway was transported to University Medical Center by Walton EMS.
Boone County Sheriff’s Office Accident Reconstruction Unit is investigating the collision.
