A car was struck by an eastbound train shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday at Seventh and Maple Streets, said Lawrence police Sgt. Anthony Brixius.
The driver of the car turned onto the train tracks by mistake and the car got stuck on the tracks. Bystanders were able to help the driver and two passengers to leave the car before the train struck the vehicle.
There were no injuries but alcohol was believed to be a factor in the incident.
