Woman survives after car hit by trains twice when fleeing police

A 29-year-old Utah woman is remarkably alive after her car was hit not once, but twice, by trains.

Police in Woods Cross said the woman was fleeing from officers at speeds up to 100 miles per hour Sunday when she drove under the crossing arms and smashed into the side of a train. Her car came to rest on the other set of tracks.

Officers tried breaking the window to get her out but had to jump out of the way before another train rammed into her car less than one minute after the first collision.
