MENLO PARK (KRON) -- A woman and her mother appear to be okay after a Caltrain train hit the back end of their car during Friday afternoon's rush hour.

Authorities say the adult woman and her mother were driving a 1996 Saab heading west on Ravenswood Avenue when they got caught in traffic straddling the train tracks.  The train hit the back end of the car.  Both people inside the car went to the hospital as a precaution but neither suffered serious injuries.

Investigators say there were vehicles in front of and behind the Saab trapping the car on the tracks.  They warn drivers to be sure to make sure there's enough room to cross the tracks before approaching them.

Trains were delayed by about 90 minutes during the clean-up and investigation.  Everything was back on time by late Friday evening.
