The car was sliced in half by the train

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WTVD) -- Video from a surveillance camera in Jacksonville, Florida shows a car try to go around crossing arms and get hit by an oncoming Amtrak passenger train.

It happened around 11 a.m. Tuesday.

As the car was cut in two, a passenger in the back seat was thrown out. Amazingly, she suffered only back injuries. The 21-year-old driver walked away unscathed.

No one on the New York-to-Miami train was hurt. It continued on its way after a four-hour delay.

The Florida Times-Union reports deputies are investigating the accident and the driver could face charges.
