WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A woman has been released from the hospital after an early morning car versus train crash in White County. 

Sheriff Bill Brooks said about 5:50 Tuesday morning, 48-year-old Bonnie Runk was driving on County Road 300 East just past Division Road when she failed to yield to an oncoming train. Brooks said the train hit Runk's car on the driver's-side at a low rate of speed. 

The car was pushed about 163 feet down the tracks, according to Brooks. There are no lights or stop arms at the intersection with the tracks. 

Runk was able to get out of her car and was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. County Road 300 East is back open.
