LITTLE SILVER, N.J. (AP) — An elderly driver escaped serious injury when her car was struck by a New Jersey Transit train in central Jersey.

NJ Transit says the accident involving a northbound North Jersey Coast Line train occurred around 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the White Road railroad crossing in Little Silver.

A vehicle driven by an 86-year-old woman was going over a crossing when the gates came down. She wasn't seriously hurt, but was taken to a hospital for observation.

Further details on her condition were not disclosed, and her name wasn't released.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.

The train did not sustain any substantial damage, but service on the North Jersey Coast Line between Long Branch and Red Bank was suspended for about an hour after the accident.
