A commuter train struck a car along Dundee Road in northwest suburban Northbrook Monday, splitting the car in half.

One person was taken to Evanston Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to a freelance news photographer.

No one on the inbound Metra #2136 Milwaukee North Line train was hurt.

The impact sent the back part of the car into a backyard. The front part remained on the road.
