Alcohol Cited as Factor in Train Collision

(La Porte, IN) - A woman drove into a train between Westville and Wanatah after consuming a lot of alcohol. She is now charged with operating while intoxicated by the LaPorte County Police. 


31-year-old Mallory Yzaguirre apparently drove around a car waiting for the train to pass, then crashed into the train at the Canadian National Railroad crossing on U.S. 421 at 860 South.


Yzaguirre explained to the police that she was traveling from her home in Bloomington to visit her parents in Chesterton. Yzaguirre claimed to have had one beer, but her alleged blood alcohol level was over three times the .08-percent legal limit.


Fortunately, the woman was not injured.
