Two Trains Collide With Jeep Only Minutes Apart

A very relieved and relatively well-for-the-ware train crash survivor from Walton, KY, is thanking his lucky stars. Fortunately, his Jeep was able to protect him from an initial collision with a train at around 10:40 p.m. on Monday, February 8, 2016. News reports describe that the driver ended up making contact with a train when he was unable to stop his vehicle on icy roads. For readers from the city, many rural areas don't have barricades at railroad track crossings.The vehicle finally came to halt on the track, where the first train made impact.

After having been pulled from his vehicle three minutes after the impact by local law enforcement, a second train was unable to stop, and collided with the Jeep. That made for two trains crashing into a Jeep inside of six minutes. The motorist has suffered from back and chest pains, as well as a punctured lung, but has come out on top considering the initial impact and possibilities of remaining in the vehicle thereafter. Tim McCullough, the train crash survivor, was quoted "as saying The fact that I slammed into a train -- not just a vehicle, I mean a train -- and I survived? I mean, it's amazing."
