    Aerial images show a vehicle that was struck by a DCTA train on October 14, 2011.

    A Denton County Transit Authority train collided with a car Friday afternoon near Business 121 and Main Street in Lewisville.

    The A-Train was headed northbound toward the Old Town Station in downtown Lewisville when it hit a car on the tracks near the 600-block of 121.

    Police said a 47-year-old woman was driving her Chevy Cavalier and about to cross the tracks when she noticed lights flashing and the railroad arms coming down.

    The woman stopped her car but was pushed onto the tracks when she was struck from behind by a person driving a Mercury Cougar.

    The train then slammed into the passenger side of her car.

    She was transported to Plano Medical Center by ground ambulance in an unknown condition.

    Officials have not said if the driver of the Mercury Cougar will be cited.
