Stalled car hit by train in Pa., but no one hurt

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Police say a train hit a car that stalled on tracks in Allentown, but the driver was able to escape before impact.

Investigators say the driver mistakenly drove onto the tracks around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday and then the vehicle stalled.

Police say the driver then called police, who notified Norfolk Southern of the problem.

But WFMZ-TV reports the oncoming train wasn't able to stop before hitting the car and pushing it down the tracks.

By that time, though, the driver had escaped and no one was hurt.
