An early morning crash into a railroad crossing may cause traffic and train slowdowns throughout the day in Kalamazoo County.

Around 6am Tuesday, authorities say that an SUV crashed into the gate at the railroad crossing along South 4th Street in Oshtemo Township.  The driver had suffered a medical episode, and is being treated for minor injuries.

While Amtrak crews work to replace the signage and gates, the crossing will be closed to traffic, however trains may be able to slowly continue on the rail.
