An elderly man narrowly escaped from his car when it got stuck on train tracks Thursday afternoon in downtown Atlanta, TX.
Police say the car driven by Donald Yarbrough, 83, became "high centered" on the tracks. Yarbrough needed help getting out of the vehicle, and was helped by a Good Samaritan and police officer.
Minutes after Yarbrough was out of the car, a train plowed through his car.
"We heard the whistle blow," a witness said. "We didn't hear the train at first, but we heard the whistle blow and I was like this is about to happen."
She immediately grabbed her cell phone to capture the collision.
Police said Union Pacific was contacted in order to stop train traffic near the crossing, but the oncoming train could not stop.
"He was kind of lagging and the lady was like, come on we have to go," the witness said.
There were no injuries caused by the collision.
