A woman was injured and a road closed for hours Saturday after a train vs vehicle collision in New Ulm. New Ulm Police said they responded to the crash at 4:13 p.m. at the 20th South St railroad crossing.

The driver, identified as 48-year-old Cynthia Olsen of Bloomington, apparently ignored crossing light signals at the tracks.  There are no crossing arms at the location. Olsen was hospitalized for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Police say 20th South St was closed for about three hours for cleanup and crash investigation.

The crash comes less than a week after a train vs vehicle crash in Brown County, when a semi hauling propane crashed with a train in Cobden.
