Local News

CHILI, N.Y. (WROC) — No one was injured after a train struck and dragged a Jeep Wrangler 25 feet Sunday night in Chili.

Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies say a 59-year-old man from Chili drove his Jeep northbound on Archer Road and went around the crossing gates that were down. At the same time, a CSX train was reversing at a slow speed and was unable to stop, hitting the Jeep and dragging it before it was able to stop.

Correction: The incident happened in Chili.

The driver was issued a citation for passing the gates and there was no evidence of drug or alcohol impairment.

The train suffered minimal damage, if any — the Jeep suffered significant damage.

Archer Road is currently closed between Ballantyne Road and Clay Hill Road.
