Reckless Driver Has SUV Reconstructed By A Metro Train
With videos like these, there is only so much that we can say in favor of the driver. Traffic rules are there for a reason and when someone ignores a clear and very loud sign, like the flashing lights and loud signal of an oncoming train, then we think it is pretty safe to say they really did it on purpose.
Houston Metro Police released this CCTV footage from a terrifying car accident that occurred on March 26. The footage shows a black SUV running a red light on a railway crossing and meeting a gruesome end.
The footage clearly shows the ramp lowering and the signal lights starts to flash bright red as a warning of the super fast metro train that is about to cross. The SUV comes but a second later and the driver decides that it is not too late to cross. Oh, how they were wrong. When the car slows down to wait for the cars on the other side to pass, it gets struck out of the way by the Houston metro train. The train slows down to a halt after a few feet.
According to NewsNet5, a Houston native woman by the name of Raunel Arreola-Moreno was driving the wayward car with her two children in the backseat. All the passengers of the SUV sustained minor injuries and are expected to make a full recovery. Thankfully, there are no fatalities from this horrendous crash.
Authorities say Mrs. Arreola-Moreno has been cited for her reckless driving that led to the accident.
