A two automobile accident that happened in Portage Michigan in which two autos crashed near railroad tracks with one of the accident victims when his jeep flipped on its side and the driver could not get out due to a back injury. The Portage Firefighters who answered the call for help arrived to get the injured male driver out of his jeep in time since a train was coming toward the intersection. The firefighters were able to get the injured man out of his jeep by dragging out of his jeep in time since they heard the train whistle warning anyone within the area where the railroad signals started to flash. The injured driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries. His condition is not known. The other who was involved in the auto accident was not injured. The good thing is that even though the jeep was smashed by the train, the driver is alive. Link is htto://www,breitbart.com/health/2023/01/02/firefighters-save-man-jeep-seconds-train-hits-it

What a scary situation. There were three young siblings (22, 25 & 29 y/o) killed in our area last year, on the train tracks. So very sad.

@CarolDM I know what you mean since no parents wants their children to die before they do.

Train collision with autos with persons inside of the auto can result in a fatality.

Just seeing a train coming down the tracks while a car or person stuck on the railroad tracks is very scary.

All that matters is the fact that the driver is alive.

That is true since a car can be replaced but not a human life.
