Train carrying Ringling Bros. animals hits car on tracks

A train carrying animals from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus hit a car on the tracks in Virginia, officials said.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey spokesman Stephen Payne said all
the people and the animals on the train were fine. He said the tracks
were cleared, and the train proceeded about three hours after the crash.

Chesterfield Police spokeswoman Elizabeth Caroon said the train dragged the car about a half-mile down the tracks late Monday before it came to a stop. She said 22-year-old Teontrey Thomas of Petersburg, the only person in the car, was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening. Thomas was issued a summons for reckless driving.
