Run Forrest! RUN!!!

MAITLAND, Fla. —Video released by the Florida Department of Transportation shows a SunRail train crashing into a car that was stalled on the tracks in Maitland on Monday.

The video shows how a 28-year-old woman barely escaped from her car before the train slammed into it.

The collision occurred at Maitland and Packwood avenues.

According to police, the driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries while scrambling to get out of her car before the 285,000-pound train hit it at 40 mph. She was struck by debris from the crash as she was moving away from the tracks.

No one on the train was hurt.

Can someone explain how this sort of thing happens?!

Why do so many cars stall on train tracks, or is it because the drivers driving standard transmission vehicles just choke?
