The driver of a Mercedes-Benz E-Class W211 was fleeing at a rather high speed from a police car when she hit a freight train head on at a railway crossing in Utah.

If hitting a train after being at the wrong end of a high speed police chase wasn't bad enough, the 29-year old woman – who may or may not have been inebriated – sat tight in her Mercedes-Benz and got hit by another freight train just as one of the police officers on her tail was trying to break her car's rear window.

Incredibly, she survived the two train crashes with only a broken arm, while the police officer trying to get her out before the second train impact escaped certain death mostly thanks to his colleague and the loud but oddly late train horn.

Apparently, the police proceeded to chase the Mercedes-Benz after the car's description matched that of a wanted person's car.

We're not talking America's most wanted fugitives here though, as it seems that the woman had initially ran with her car from a place where police was responding to an unwanted guest disturbance call.
