A Close Call as a Train Comes!
Here's a VERY close call between two women and a train.
They supposedly trespassed an 80-foot-tall railway bridge in Indiana and it almost cost them their lives.
The Indiana Rail Road Company says the engineer in the train followed protocol and put on the emergency brake while sounding the horn.
The engineer thought he had killed the two women, and called the Monroe County sheriff's office. But authorities say the women survived, and drove off in a car.A Close Call as a Train Comes!
