Two men critically injured in O.C. train-car collision
A freight train collided with a car at an Anaheim rail crossing this morning, critically injuring two men.
The eastbound train collided with a BMW just before 7:20 a.m. at the rail crossing at Tustin and Orangethorpe avenues, pushing the car into a power pole, said Greg McKeown, a spokesman for the Orange County Fire Authority.
Anaheim police Sgt. Rick Martinez told the Associated Press that the vehicle was driving on a road next to the tracks when it turned in front of the train.
When firefighters arrived, they rescued the driver right away. But it took another 30 minutes to cut the passenger from the totaled car.
