A driver is lucky to be alive this morning after a train slammed into an SUV.

Officials say the crash at the Forester Avenue Crossing in Warwick happened around noon Wednesday.

The impact of the crash flipped the car, but the driver managed to escape without any serious injuries.

The victim's father tells News 12 the crossing gate was out of order at the time of the strike.

Police have yet to confirm if a technological issue was the cause.
