Driver attempts to beat train crossing with children passengers

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Apr 3, 2014

Ranuel Arreola-Moreno was charged with running a red light and passing train crossing gates while attempting to beat a train while the warning gates were already in motion. Thankfully, Arreola-Moreno and the two children and one other adult in his car survived the inevitable crash as the train collided with the passing car.

Arreola-Moreno can be seen in police footage swerving around the train's crossing bars at the intersection of Fannin and Naomi streets in Houston. 

"The train continues driving for several seconds, dragging the SUV, before coming to a stop. Luckily, everyone in the SUV survived, though two adults and two children were taken to the hospital," reports UK's Daily Mail.
