Car goes around warning arm, gets hit by train

Posted: Updated:
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (KWWL) - A driver goes around the arm blocking the railroad tracks and is lucky to be alive. The train actually split the car in half. 

This happened in Florida. A passenger in the car flew out but miraculously the people in the car were not seriously injured.

The father of the driver says his son was given a ticket.

"Very happy that it happened the way it did," said Stacey Peterson, the driver's father. "I didn't want it to happen at all, but maybe he'll learn from it, slow down and not crossing the road when the arms are down."

No one on the train was hurt.
