Police: Car plunges 25 feet onto train tracks

Police say a car dropped 25 feet onto the New Rochelle Metro-North train station, flipped over, and miraculously, the driver survived.

According to police, the woman was driving on Bridge Street at about 1:45 p.m. when a car pulled out of a lot and collided with her vehicle, forcing her through a fence and onto the tracks.

Police say the female driver suffered minor injuries and was fortunate because she narrowly missed high voltage wires as the car plunged, there was no train coming and she had her seat belt on.
