A driver jumped out of his car moments before it was smashed by an oncoming AMTRAK train on the tracks that run in front of the Quarry Market, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Police say the driver was attempting to enter northbound 281 from Jones-Maltsberger Rd, but he misjudged the entrance in the darkness and instead drove onto the train tracks that run parallel to 281.
The man was trying to drive off the tracks when he saw the lights of the oncoming train.
The AMTRAK engineer also say the headlights of the car on the tracks, and engaged the brakes, but the train hit the car, demolishing it.
Nobody was hurt, and Union Pacific Police are investigating.
