Witnesses at the scene told police they thought the woman was attempting to make a u-turn at the tracks after the crossing arms went down, when she got too close to the train and it hit her vehicle.
Officials say the woman was the only occupant of the vehicle that was hit and that her injuries are minor.
Franklin Street will be closed at the tracks for an unspecified amount of time as the scene is cleared.
