LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) _ A woman talking on a cell phone was killed Monday after driving into the path of an Amtrak train going 75 mph, police said.

Police said Wanda Tappin, 44, apparently did not notice the crossing arms blocking the road.

The train pushed her car about a quarter-mile down the track before stopping.

None of the 155 people aboard the train was hurt.
