Just before midnight Suffolk Police, MTA LIRR Police and Patchogue Fire Department were called to the LIRR Montauk Line just east  of the Patchogue railroad station after a vehicle was struck by a train.

The driver of the vehicle was trapped inside and needed to be cut free by firefighters.  The victim, amazingly, was not seriously injured and rushed to a local hospital for treatment.

The Montauk branch was closed for a few hours while detectives conducted an investigation.  

Nobody on the train was injured.
