Vermont State Police say no one was injured when a car hit a train in Middlesex. The crash at 9:45 a.m. Tuesday occurred just off U.S. Route 2.

Witnesses say 59-year-old Colleen Bloom was trying to cross the tracks when her foot slid from the brake to the accelerator causing her vehicle to hit the Amtrak Vermonter passenger train.

Police say the train carrying 24 passengers was delayed for about an hour.

It was the second crash involving an Amtrak train in Vermont in two days.

On Sunday, an Amtrak train hit a car that slid onto the tracks in Sharon. In that case, the driver of the car suffered minor injuries.
