A woman was rushed to St. Mary’s Medical Center Wednesday morning after colliding with an Amtrak train at the railroad crossing at 25th street and Windsor Avenue in West Palm Beach. 

The woman has been identified as Tairia Lee, 24, of Riviera Beach.

Twenty-fifth Street was closed between Australian Avenue and Tamarind Avenue while West Palm Beach police investigated. 

The train was loaded with passengers when the crash happened.

Eyewitnesses to the crash, who did not want to speak on camera, told WPBF that this particular railroad crossing has had problems in the past and crews were on scene fixing it Tuesday night.
