Ohio men flee car on tracks before collision with train

ARCHBOLD, Ohio (AP) — Two men escaped with their lives intact after they were forced to flee from a vehicle before it was struck by a train in northwest Ohio over the weekend.

The Ohio Highway Patrol says the 21-year-old men were in a car traveling about a mile east of Archbold when the driver failed to round a curve and lost control of the vehicle around 11:05 p.m. Saturday.

The car screeched to a halt on railroad tracks off County Road D. With a westbound train bearing down on the vehicle, the men safely exited before impact.

No injuries were reported.

The Blade newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/2hu4foV ) that alcohol is not considered a factor in the crash.
