Slow-Moving Train Hits Car Playing Loud Music

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Police in Montana say a man who was
apparently so distracted by loud music that he didn't notice a
freight train moving toward him before it struck his car just
behind the driver's door.

Sgt. Jerry Odlin tells the Missoulian the man's car was badly
damaged in the crash early Sunday, but the driver was not injured.

No alcohol or drugs were involved.

Odlin says the driver, a Missoula man in his 30s, likely will be cited for failing to stop at a railroad signal.
