PORTLAND -- A MAX train in North Portland crashed into a 1966 Chevy that was stalled on the tracks early Saturday morning, police said.
Officers were called just after 1 a.m. to the report of a car struck by a northbound train at N Interstate Avenue and N Holman Street, according to Lt. Robert King.
Police at the scene learned that the car had mechanical problems and was stuck on the tracks when it was hit. The driver of the car, 20-year-old Alexander S. Redden, was not in the car at the time of impact.
"The car was broadside on the tracks and had been pushed approximately 40 feet after impact," King said.
Redden was arrested for DUII, reckless driving and criminal mischief. Nobody on the MAX train was injured.
