A 49-year old man died Friday night after his car collided with a Metro Transit light-rail train.
The northbound train was heading through the intersection of 26th Street and Hiawatha Avenue when it hit the car, dragging it approximately 500 feet down the tracks.
Initial reports indicate the car was trying to go under or around the arm gate.
Metro Transit reconstructed the accident and is still investigating.
