BRUNSWICK, Maine — A 19-year-old Maine woman escaped injury after her pickup became trapped on railroad tracks and was hit by a train.

Police said Abigail Marsh, of Brunswick, stopped on tracks off the Route 1 exit at Cook’s Corner, at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

When a Maine Eastern Railroad passenger train came along, Marsh was unable to move her truck because of all the other vehicles at the exit.

Police Cmdr. Kevin Schofield said Marsh was issued summonses for parking on railroad tracks and operating after suspension. Nobody was hurt, but it took about 20 minutes to clear the area. The pickup was totaled.
