IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A 22-year-old man suffered minor injuries when his sport utility vehicle crossed into the path of a freight train northeast of Idaho Falls.

KPVI-TV reports that the driver, Brigham Young University-Idaho student Brent Lee, was taken to the hospital in Idaho Falls after the collision Tuesday afternoon.

Bonneville County authorities say the train was traveling about 38 mph when it hit the passenger side of the SUV. Lee told deputies he did not see the train. Officials say the railroad signal lights were operating properly.
