MAGEE, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Three people escaped injury when their car was hit by a train Sunday afternoon in Magee. The accident occurred on 11th Avenue Northwest just before noon.

The driver said the cross bars came down as she tried to cross the tracks. All three passengers, including a 10-year-old child, were able to climb out after the train came to a stop.

Magee Police Chief Randy Crawford says the people in the car are lucky to be alive, adding that accidents involving trains and vehicles are a serious matter and usually don't end so well.
