Kansas Highway Patrol

(KNZA)--An Elwood man was injured Wednesday afternoon after striking a train in the Doniphan County community.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 52-year-old Robert Shultz was driving a SUV southbound on 15th Street near Vermont Street when he failed to yield to the eastbound Union Pacific train, which was being operated remotely.

Shultz was transported to Mosaic Life Care, in St. Joseph, with suspected minor injuries.

The Patrol says there was a juvenile passenger in his vehicle, but no information is being released on the juvenile because of their age.

The wreck was reported around 1:00 Wednesday afternoon.
