A woman and three children managed to get out of a vehicle before it was hit by a train Sunday night in northwest Oklahoma City.
The vehicle was hit by a train shortly after 8:15 p.m. after the occupants abandoned the vehicle on the tracks at Britton Road and Western Avenue, Oklahoma City firefighters said.
The driver told News 9 they were crossing the intersection before gates came down and were not able to clear the intersection in time.
She and the three children managed to get out before the train struck the vehicle. Paramedics checked them out at the scene.
