Woman rescued from car from oncoming train...just in time

Raw CCTV:March 25/09:A Newark woman's car's a total loss, but she's safe and sound after the car got stuck on some railroad tracks.

Newark police say Anne Griffith turned onto the CSX tracks near the intersection of West Main Street and New London Road Wednesday night because she mistook the tracks for another road.

Griffith's car got stuck, and as 4 rescuers tried to dislodge it, railroad crossing signals came on, so the 4 helped Griffith out of the car and away from the tracks.

A short time later, the train hit the car, pushing it about 100 feet down the tracks before throwing it off behind the Deer Park Tavern and coming to a stop before the North College Avenue crossing.

No one was hurt, but the section of the tracks where the accident happened was closed for about 3 hours.
