Two people were arrested early Saturday after a car and train collided in Carbondale.

D'Andre A. Woods, 21, of Crete was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Adonis T. Tate of Matteson was arrested on a warrant.

The crash happened shortly before 4 a.m. when police responded to a report of a traffic crash involving a train at the East College Street railroad crossing.

Police say a vehicle driven by D'Andre A. Woods, 21, of Crete, was eastbound on East College and drove around the lowered, flashing railroad crossing gates and struck a slow moving northbound Amtrak train.

The train received very minor damage, according to police.

Woods was released after posting bond and Tate was taken to the Jackson County Jail.
