CHESTERFIELD, Va. — Police say a train carrying animals from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus hit a car on the tracks in Virginia.
Chesterfield Police spokeswoman Elizabeth Caroon says the train dragged the car about a half-mile down the tracks late Monday before it came to a stop. She says 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. She says Thomas was issued a summons for reckless driving.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey spokesman Stephen Payne says all the people and the animals on the train are fine. He says the tracks were cleared, and the train proceeded about three hours after the crash.
