In Elm Grove, a woman was driving her van with one of her children when it got stuck on a set of train tracks. The woman's husband was following in another car and saw the van get stuck as the train approached.
The husband and a police officer quickly got the woman away from the tracks but were thrown several yards in the impact while trying to extract the child. The child was unhurt in the impact, but the officer and the father were both hospitalized in satisfatory and critical conditions respectively.
