SHOCK VIDEO: Police chase ends when woman rams car into train and then gets hit by 2nd train
Posted October 15th, 2013 @ 2:02pm

At about 8:20 a.m., police responded to an unwanted guest disturbance call. In other words, the
suspect wouldn't leave someone's house.

"Our complainant gave a vehicle description of someone that was involved," Osoro said. "At that time, one of our patrolmen spotted the vehicle and attempted to stop it on Redwood Road."

When the woman didn't pull over for police, a brief chase began. Osoro said it was during the chase the woman and the trains collided.

"There was already a southbound train going across 2600 south, and she hit that train while it was crossing,"Osoro said. "While officers were trying to get her out of her car, a second southbound train hit her vehicle."

Despite the impacts, the woman suffered only a broken arm. "The vehicle sustained heavy damage, so in this case she's very lucky to still be with us," Osoro said.
