State police say they've charged a man with driving under the influence of alcohol after he struck a Norfolk Southern train in Bear.

Police say Derrick Jones of Washington, D.C., hit the train around 3:16 a.m. Saturday. They say the crash happened in the area of Old Porter Road at Porter Road and that Jones' car became wedged under a tank of liquefied petroleum gas after he struck the train.

Jones was taken to a hospital by helicopter and was admitted with non-life-threatening injuries. A passenger in his 1994 Ford pickup was treated for minor injuries at a hospital.

Police say Jones was also charged with careless driving, disregarding a traffic control device and driving with expired tags.
