Brightline train smashes into vehicle

No one was hurt after a Brightline train smashed into an unoccupied vehicle Wednesday morning in Broward County.

Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue said the car was hit at Pembroke Road and N Dixie Highway.

Single lanes were blocked in both directions with minimal delays reported, tweeted Fire Rescue.

Police later said the driver was attempting to turn onto Dixie Highway but ended up on the train tracks. When she tried to maneuver off the tracks her vehicle became wedges on a train rail.

She exited the vehicle before the train struck.

Surveillance video from a nearby business, Garic Auto Center, caught the moment the train violently hit the woman's car. (Watch Below)
