A Dawson man was charged after his car was hit by a train on Friday night in Lower Tyrone Township, according to a state police report.

Cullen J. Hribal, 39, drove around railroad crossing gates at River Road and School Road about 10:55 p.m. and off the edge of the roadway, becoming stuck on the railroad crossing, state police said.

An approaching train hit the car and pushed it down the railroad tracks about 50 feet, police said.
