Niagara Falls police are investigating an overnight crash between a car and a CSX train.

A CSX spokesman tells 7 Eyewitness News the car was on the tracks, off of 47th Street at Simmons Avenue.

Police were called to the scene about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Crews had Niagara Falls Boulevard blocked off at 47th Street.  It's since reopened.

The car was towed from the scene.

A CSX spokesman says the train was a "yard train" that was picking up freight locally on Simmons Avenue.

The spokesman says the crew was not hurt.  He said the driver of the car refused treatment.
