(LAPEER COUNTY) -- There were no injuries reported in a car-train collision that occurred Friday morning in Lapeer.

After impact, the vehicle came to rest within the ditch. Deputies report that the railroad crossing arms were lowered for the westbound train; however, the driver stated that she and her passenger did not observe the train because she was distracted and was driving too fast for conditions.   The driver was cited by authorities.
