"We just want to make sure that the public is aware. When you come up to a track or any kind of intersection where there is a train involved, please look both ways before crossing that track. As you know they are not always signals. There is some sort of sign. Just be aware of your surroundings and make sure you stay safe," Penny Kleinberg, a Dakota County Sheriff's Deputy said.
Authorities say the driver was transported to Mercy Medical Center with a head injury and is listed in fair condition.
