    At least six people are dead after a crowded Metro-North commuter train hit a vehicle on the tracks north of White Plains, New York, Tuesday night, sparking a fire that gutted the lead car of the train, according to the MTA.


    Among the dead were five passengers on the train and the driver of the black Jeep Cherokee that was struck. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said the gates came down on top of the SUV at the crossing, which was stopped on the tracks. The driver got out to look at the rear of the car, then she got back in and drove forward and was struck.

    Passengers were evacuated to the back of the Harlem Line train then were taken to a local rock-climbing gym for shelter, the Cliffs. Buses were en route there to get to them to Pleasantville, a spokesperson for the railroad said.

    Usually when a train hits an SUV the train wins

    Broad who caused it wasn't half bad. Typical Upper Westchester MILF.

    49 years old, 3 children. Dopey enough to stay with her disabled car when an oncoming train approached.

    I bet the guy behind her was honking his horn distracting her. He said he honked to alert her about the train?

    It was reported that she was standing on the tracks waving her arms to try & get the train to stop. Stupidity kills 6 people.

    From Wednesdays NYT:

    Rick Hope, who was in the car directly behind Ms. Brody’s Mercedes S.U.V., said her car was stopped on the road just before the tracks but in front of the crossing arm. He watched as the red lights began to flash, warning bells rang and the crossing arm came down on the back of her car.

    “As soon as I see the gate go down, I back up,” Mr. Hope said outside his Yorktown Heights home on Wednesday evening. “I say, ‘She’s going to back up as soon as she sees what’s going on.'”

    But instead, Ms. Brody calmly got out of her car. She walked around the back, pushed up against the guardrail, and found it wedged firmly in place.

    Mr. Hope said he began to panic, knowing a train would plow through in seconds. He said he motioned with his hands at Ms. Brody to come toward him. Knowing his headlights were on, possibly blocking her from seeing him, he backed his car up more, thinking she might copy his behavior.

    For a split second, he said, she looked at him. He thought she might walk away from the car.

    “She looks at me, that’s the disturbing part,” he said. “I was waiting for her to say, ‘What do I do?’ That’s easy — come here!”

    Instead she walked back to the driver’s seat and climbed in. There was a pause, as if she were buckling her seat belt.

    “The thing’s dinging, red lights are flashing, it’s going off,” Mr. Hope said. “I just remember going, ‘Hurry up.’ I just knew she was going to back up — never in my wildest dreams did I think she’d go forward.”

    She drove forward.

    “It was just instantaneous,” he said. “She was gone.”
