A train struck a vehicle near the Midlothian Metra station Monday, and one person was cut from the car and hospitalized in critical condition. Rock Island Line trains were delayed following the collision.

Inbound train 422 struck a vehicle near the Midlothian grade crossing during the afternoon rush. That train and outbound train 411 were both stopped at the scene, near 149th and Pulaski.

Police say it appears the driver tried to go around the warning gates.
