Video: Woman struck by trains during police pursuit
The woman was fleeing from officers at speeds up to 100 miles per hour when she smashed into the side of a train
WOODS CROSS, Utah — A 29-year-old Utah woman is remarkably alive after her car was hit not once, but twice, by trains.
Woods Cross detective Adam Osoro says the woman was fleeing from officers at speeds up to 100 miles per hour Sunday when she drove under the crossing arms and smashed into the side of a train.
Her car came to rest on the other set of tracks. Officers tried breaking the window to get her out but had to jump out of the way before another train rammed into her car less than one minute after the first collision.
The woman suffered only broken bones.
Osoro says the woman fled after police were called to a home in the Salt Lake City suburb. It wasn't clear Tuesday if she faced any charges.
