A train slammed into a car in Woodward after snow trapped the vehicle on some train tracks.

Monday's winter storm dumped at least 15 inches of snow in Woodward, and crews are still struggling to clear roadways. The driver was traveling in the 600 block of 48th Street when he tried to drive over the tracks, but became trapped on the snow-covered road.

The driver was able to safely escape the car, but couldn't push the vehicle from the tracks before the train arrived and crashed into the car.

The car was totaled, but no one was hurt.
