An elderly couple is happy to be alive after two good Samaritans took them out of their car just before a train hit them.
Police in Bridgewater, Mass., Said they were called to a railroad crossing on Broad Street after a report, an MBTA commuter rail train hit a car early Thursday afternoon.
The vehicle got stuck at the railway crossing due to heavy snowfall. Two passers-by quickly helped the older couple, a driver and a passenger, get out of the car before the train arrived, police said in a press release.
The car was thrown to nearby doors and a control shed that exposed live wires.
The dramatic photos shared on the department's Twitter page showed the vehicle badly damaged.
No injuries were reported.
Now, the authorities are looking for help to identify the two good Samaritans who helped, but they seemed to have left the scene after the crash.
