VIDEO: Utah Woman Hit By Two Trains During Vehicle Pursuit
A woman fleeing officers in Woods Cross, Utah, drove her car into one train and was struck by another Sunday. Miraculously, she suffered only minor injuries and a broken arm.
At about 8:20 a.m., police responded to an unwanted guest disturbance call at 2300 South and Redwood Road.
“Our complainant gave a vehicle description of someone that was involved,” Det. Adam Osoro of the Woods Cross Police Department told Fox 13. “At that time, one of our patrolmen spotted the vehicle and attempted to stop it on Redwood Road.”
The woman didn’t pull over and a chase began. It ended when she drove her Mercedes into a train at a railroad crossing.
“There was already a southbound train going across 2600 south, and she hit that train while it was crossing,” Osoro said. “While officers were still trying to get her out of her car, a second southbound train hit her vehicle.”
Police said the woman faces charges for evading arrest and additional charges, including a possible DUI, are being investigated.
