HOUSTON, Texas (NBC News) – New video out today shows just how dangerous it is to drive around railroad crossing gates.
The pictures come from Houston, Texas where last week the driver of a van drove around the gate only to be hit by a speeding commuter train.
The light rail train then drags the vehicle before coming to a stop.
Two adults and two children in the van suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Police say the driver will be ticketed for running a red light and going around the crossing gates.
