The SUV struck a silver pick-up, injuring both drivers. Frederick Ave. was down to one lane in each direction for over an hour as crews worked to get the drivers into awaiting ambulances and clear the scene.

The driver of the SUV, a 20-year-old female, received a citation and was taken to the hospital. The driver of the silver pick-up, a 51-year-old male was also taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

The red sedan rolled over, striking the railroad crossing bar before coming to a rest upside down on the north side of the railroad tracks. 

The driver, a 21-year-old female, suffered only minor injuries and was taken to the hospital. She received a summons for failing to maintain her lane. 

The driver of the other vehicle was not injured.
