    The crash happened at about 2 a.m. at the Alden Road and Orange Avenue railroad crossing.


    The CSX train was heading south when it struck the back of the SUV.


    Traffic was blocked for nearly 2 1/2 hours while crews investigated the crash.


    “We had to go all around back roads. (There were) 10 to 12 people stuck over there,” a driver said.


    No injuries were reported.


    Authorities have not said whether they knew why the SUV was parked on the tracks, or who it belongs to.
