An accident involving a freight train and a vehicle on Essen Lane Tuesday afternoon snarled traffic but didn’t cause any injuries, Baton Rouge Police said.

A preliminary investigation into the wreck indicated the driver of the vehicle was trying to drive across the tracks, located south of Interstate 10 near Anselmo Lane, when a train rumbled through and collided with the vehicle, said Cpl. L’Jean McKneely, a Baton Rouge Police spokesman.
