The police investigation revealed that a line of cars were stopped for a railway cleaning crew on the tracks, when a male driver with a New driver’s license rear-ended the line of cars, causing a small pileup. One of the individuals involved was transported to hospital with minor whiplash injuries and released a short time later. The 17 year-old driver was issued a ticket for Driving Without Due Care & Attention.
