DARIEN, Conn. (AP) _ Metro-North railway officials say a train struck a car in Darien that was driven by a 92-year-old man who had stopped on the tracks.

Metro-North spokeswoman Marjorie Anders says the man was taken to a local hospital with a shoulder injury.

She says none of the 48 passengers aboard the train were hurt.

Anders said the railway gates and flashers came down in front and behind of the man’s sedan and he was the only person in the car.

She said it was unclear why he had stopped on the tracks.

Anders says there is damage to the railway and the train and the line was expected to reopen by 1 p.m.

Bus service was being provided until repairs are completed.
