Sheriff: Driver Slides Into Moving Train Due To Icy Road Conditions

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- Authorities in St. Louis County say a driver slid into a moving train Monday afternoon after being unable to stop due to icy road conditions.

According to the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded around 3 p.m. to a crash that occurred at a railroad crossing on North Ramshaw Road in Clinton Township.

Officials say 20-year-old Makenzey Goerdt was traveling westbound on Ramshaw road when she approached the train crossing and her vehicle failed to stop due to icy road conditions.

As a result, Goerdt's car slid into one of the Canadian National Train rail cars as it crossed the intersection.

According to the sheriff's office, the 20-year-old was not hurt.

The car, however, was a total loss as a result of the crash.
