Video: Woman hit by 2 trains during police chase and survives
WOODS CROSS, Utah — A woman in Utah who was fleeing from police was hit by two trains at a crossing Sunday.
The 29-year-old walked away from the dual collisions with a broken arm. It’s hard to believe when you see the video of the crashes that was recorded by a police car’s dashcam.
The mangled Mercedes she was driving sat pinned under the train for several hours.
Police say the original call came at 8:20 a.m. Sunday as an unwanted guest disturbance. What that means is that the suspect wouldn’t leave someone’s house.
Investigators say they found the woman and when she refused to pull over for officers, there was a chase. It was during the chase that she slammed into the first train.
Witnesses involved said there was alcohol at the original location, but police haven’t confirmed whether the woman was intoxicated.
Officials say she faces charges for evading arrest, and additional charges are being investigated.
