CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a driver got stuck between railroad crossing gates and escaped, not far from the crossing where a fiery crash between a train and another car killed six people last month.
But on Saturday, Westchester County officials say the driver freed her car by backing up and breaking a crossing arm.
The Journal News (https://lohud.us/1MhLatS ) says Cynthia Parent told police she was crossing the Metro-North Railroad tracks on Roaring Brook Road in Chappaqua when a gate came down, trapping her.
Last month in Valhalla, about 6 miles south of Chappaqua, an SUV on the tracks was hit by a train. The driver and five passengers on the train were killed.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority operates Metro-North.
