Everyone got out of the car before the train hit and everyone is okay.

Officers said the smashed car is a reminder to always STOP, LOOK, and LISTEN, and make sure all railroad tracks are clear before you cross.

If your car is stalled or stuck on the tracks call 911 immediately so dispatchers can warn the railroad and stop all trains from passing through.
