El Paso County Sheriff's Deputies are on the scene of a crash involving a car and a train. It happened about 6:30 a.m. Thursday on Fabens Rd. and Austin St. in Fabens.

A Sheriff's Office spokesperson told us the woman inside the car was stopped waiting for an approaching train to pass when another car came up behind her and rear ended her vehicle pushing it onto the train tracks. That's when the train slammed into the car. We're told Border Patrol agents were the first on the scene and tried to help pull the woman out of her car. Injuries are unknown at this time.

NewsChannel 9's Sandra Ramirez is on the scene. You can look for updates to this story on her Twitter page, @sramirezreports.
