A woman and her dog have had a remarkable escape after their car became stuck on a railway track just minutes before a train rushed through the intersection.
What could have ended in tragedy was luckily averted thanks to the quick thinking of a passer-by, who found the woman and was able to convince her to exit the vehicle as the train's horn sounded its approach in the town of Ponder, in Texas.
According to the witness, the woman had been drinking "and had no idea why her vehicle was struck". The incident happened earlier this week.
