UPDATE: Streets have reopened.
Earlier today, following a train crash with a vehicle, Jackson County Road 33 and Main Street in Hollywood shut down for several hours.
Hollywood police chief Jason Hepler tells WAAY 31 an elderly woman is in a hospital in stable condition. Firefighters say the woman pulled in front of an oncoming Norfolk Southern train around 1 o’clock Saturday afternoon.
The woman apparently hesitated and tried to back up. The second-guessing caused her to linger on the track too long, according to police.
The closings affecting County Road 33 and Main Street were concentrated at the railroad crossings.
