Car-train collision injures driver

By ANDY HUMBLES, Staff Writer


The driver of a compact car was injured yesterday when a passenger train
struck the vehicle at a Lebanon railroad crossing. The train pushed the car
about three-tenths of a mile sideways before coming to a halt.

Sabrina Holman, 26, was driving a 1997 Toyota Corolla southbound on Carver
Lane when the car was struck by the train, which was traveling eastbound at
30-35 mph, police said. Police said Holman lists addresses in Lebanon and in

None of the 205 passengers on the train, which was pulling eight passenger
cars, was injured, police said.

Police said Holman either was trying to beat the train through the crossing
or was unaware it was coming. The crossing does not have a gate or crossing
arms or flashing lights, police said.

Lebanon Officer Steve Green said Holman was in stable condition yesterday
after being flown by helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Holman's car was struck on the passenger's side and was initially lifted
slightly before it returned to the ground as it was pushed, Green said.
"After it was impacted, the train picked up the car a tad and some sort of
latch hooked on to the passenger's side and pushed it," he said. "It's
surprising it didn't rip the car in two." Holman was "barely conscious," at
the scene, and Green didn't know exactly what injuries she had sustained.

Green said the train engineer, Brent Thompson of Columbia, told police that
he sounded the train horn about a quarter-mile before the crossing, and
applied the brakes immediately upon im- pact. Green said there was no damage
to the train, and it was able to continue.

Yeah, that's a terrific photo. I especially like the side-view of the "Batman Building*" on the horizon.

(*Batman Building is what I call the BellSouth Building...a very striking and attractive structure that for some reason it reminds me of Batman's head. )
