WINNIPEG A 45-year-old man has been charged with impaired driving after a van smashed into a train Friday morning.

A man and a woman were taken were taken to hospital with minor injuries following the crash around 10:30 a.m. on Notre Dame Avenue near Wall Street.

Police say the driver didn't stop despite the fact the crossing lights were flashing.

Const. Jacqueline Chaput said the vehicle was not stolen. The driver was detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.

"It could have had tragic consequences. It's bad judgment for driving while impaired," she said.
