“The driver must have thought the car was in reverse, but instead it was in drive,” said North Salem Police Chief Thomas Howley. “The car knocked down the fence between the tracks and the parking lot,” he added.

Metro-North Railroad was notified to shut down the southbound track until the vehicle and the fence were secured.
