CHAPPAQUA (WABC) -- There was a close call on Sunday at a Metro North crossing in Westchester County.

Police say a driver became stuck between the gates at Roaring Brook Road in Chappaqua just before 11 a.m. Sunday. They say she ended up breaking a crossing arm when she backed up to get out of the way of an oncoming train.

On Sunday, the crossing arm was replaced.

The crossing is about six miles north of the one in Valhalla where six people died in similar circumstances last month.
