A mother and daughter narrowly escaped being slammed into by a train as shocking video shows them running for their lives just seconds before the crash.
A video, posted to Facebook by Cody Atchley, shows a mother and daughter running hand-in-hand away from the tracks in Forney, Texas, on Tuesday, as a Union Pacific train barreled across the intersection.
The father was also seen running away from the tracks, and Atchley told DailyMail.com on Tuesday that there were five people - three children believed to be under 12 - that evacuated the car, but no one was injured.
Atchley told DailyMail.com that the driver of the vehicle had pulled onto the tracks while waiting for a red light rather than 'waiting behind [the] track.'
'The arms came down for train to pass [and] was on top of the SUV,' he said. 'They couldn’t get out because of vehicle...Close seconds before [the] train hit them they jumped out and grab the kids from back seats.'
