Elderly couple safely escapes before train slams into car

FENTON (WJRT) (12/14/2017) - An elderly couple safely escaped their car before it got destroyed by a train in Fenton on Thursday.

The Fenton Police Department said the couple's car slid into a curb and got stuck on the railroad tracks at the East Silver Lake Road crossing near North Leroy Street.

Police and a tow truck responded to the scene, but they were unable to move the car before a Canadian National Railway train came through and hit it. Everyone was a safe distance away when the collision occurred.

The train came to a stop after the crash, which blocked several crossings in Fenton while police investigating the incident. All of the crossings later reopened and traffic returned to normal.
