Terrifying collision between train and car caught on tape; Driver walks away unharmed

Tom Negovan/WGN News – DES PLAINES, Ill. — A terrifying collision between a Metra train and a car was caught on tape during Monday’s snowy evening rush hour.

The Metra train was arriving in Des Plaines en route from downtown Chicago when it struck the car.

The car was stuck, hung up in the fresh ice and snow along the tracks. The driver worked frantically to free her vehicle but was unsuccessful.

Amazingly, she declined medical treatment at the scene and walked away without a scratch.
