PHOTOS: Metro North train hits vehicle on tracks | 7online.com

Ok, yeah, it's sad and unfortunate that people died in this tragedy. And no way anyone would survive in their car after bring hit by a commuter train at 60 mph. But look at the photos of the MB SUV... The body of the car for the most part retained most off its shape. It didn't get flattened. It didn't split in half. The roof didn't get torn off.

^I agree. All that is left is the frame of the car.

I think we're used to the movies in which the car is pretty much shattered into lego pieces.

She still died tho so it doesn't really matter how well the frame stood up. I see people do what she did all the time, no idea why people think its worth saving a few minutes, hate to say she deserved it but oh well.

This is very bizarre.......so the car got hit by the railroad warning bar, so the driver got out and checked out the damage, then got back in the car but didn't move for at least 30 secs, and she had her passengers just sitting in the car waiting the entire time.


1. Why didn't she move?
2. Why didn't they get out?

We had one happen last week where a guy drove onto the tracks, got stuck and his vehicle was hit by a commuter train that derailed.
