Train-car collision stalls traffic for hour

A train collided with a vehicle Friday night in Biloxi, stalling traffic at railroad crossings for more than an hour, but the vehicle's driver was able to escape without injury, Biloxi police officials said.

Biloxi police Sgt. Jackie Rhodes said a vehicle stalled on the tracks at Oak Street and the driver was able to get out of the car before the collision. It happened around 10 p.m.

Rhodes said the tracks have since been reopened.

He said the official report on the accident has not been completed.
