Police have released video showing an SUV being struck by a Houston passenger train after the driver went around crossing gates.
The light-rail train then dragged the vehicle before finally coming to a stop. Two adults and two children in the SUV were transported for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening.
The accident happened last week. The Metro Transit Authority of Harris County released video footage Monday showing the SUV drive around the gates, then slow for other motorists traveling along a road parallel to the tracks. The train struck the SUV broadside on the passenger side.
It was left a mangled wreck, partially pinned under the front of the train.
Police say the driver will be cited for running a red light and other infractions.
23 Kenney Drive
