A 20-year-old Colorado woman has been hospitalized with serious injuries after the police car she had been detained in was struck by a train, per local officials.

Yareni Rios-Gonzalez, 20, of Greeley, was in the back of the patrol car around 7:30 p.m. on Friday when the train collided with the vehicle north of Platteville, according to a news release published Monday by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

Police had detained the victim during a traffic stop prior to the crash, according to the bureau's initial release, published Saturday.

Rios-Gonzalez was transported to UCHealth Greeley Hospital with multiple injuries, but is expected to survive, CBI said on Monday.

An officer with the Platteville Police Department had stopped Rios-Gonzalez on Friday after police received a report of an "alleged road rage incident involving a firearm" in Ft. Lupton, according to Saturday's release.

Rios-Gonzalez parked her car ahead of the railroad tracks, but the PPD officer who stopped behind her parked on the tracks, per the release.

The train hit the police car while the on-scene officers "cleared the suspect vehicle" while conducting an investigation.

Investigations into the incident are ongoing, according to Monday's release. Multiple agencies are assisting, including the Ft. Lupton Police Department, the Colorado State Patrol and the CBI itself.

Platteville police chief Carl Dwyer reportedly confirmed that a Platteville police officer is on administrative leave as the incident is investigated, according to Colorado Public Radio.

It is unclear if Rios-Gonzalez has retained an attorney.

The Platteville Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
