Four people suffered injuries after an SUV collided with a freight train last night east of Peterborough. The vehicle was t-boned just before 6pm when it failed to stop at a railway crossing and was plowed into a nearby ditch. The collision happened on 3rd Line, north of Highway 7 near Norwood. The driver was airlifted by ORNG air ambulance to St. Michael's hospital in Toronto. The three passengers are all expected to survive. Police say the train was travelling very slow, otherwise, their injuries would have been far more serious.
