A train and SUV collided on Government Street early Tuesday night, causing minor injuries to a driver who police say tried to beat the train over the tracks.

The driver, whose identity was not released, was heading east on Government Street near South 15th Street through an intersection with only lights and a bell —- and drove her car into the train’s path just before 5:30 p.m., said Cpl. Don Coppola, a Baton Rouge Police spokesman.

The woman was cited for failure to yield to a train, Coppola added.
