Sept. 5 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania train pulling into a station ended up smacking into a car that inched too far onto the tracks as the locomotive approached.

A video posted to YouTube by witness Jason Schaedler shows the Reading and Northern Steam Locomotive approaching the Jim Thorpe Train Station about 11 a.m. Monday when a car leaving the station's parking lot pulls onto the tracks in front of the engine.


The train strikes the car, sending it crashing into a nearby light pole.

Witnesses said the driver and a passenger in the car were not injured. Train passengers reported they did not even feel the impact.
