FDOT releases video of SunRail train crashing into car in Maitland
Maitland police remind drivers to not park on tracks
MAITLAND, Fla. – The Florida Department of Transportation has released video of a SunRail train crashing into a car in Maitland.
The Maitland Police Department said the car was stopped on the railroad tracks around 10:30 a.m. Thursday as the driver waited at a red light.
Investigators said the arms started to come down at the crossing.
The video shows the driver attempt a U-turn to get out of the train's way.
Thankfully no one was injured and the car only had minor rear-end damage. Officers are reminding people to not park on the train tracks.
We want to remind everyone that parking on train tracks is always a bad idea. The train is always going to win in a vehicle vs train collision.— Maitland Police Department (@MaitlandPolice) June 20, 2019
