AUGUSTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 63-year-old Ann Arbor woman grabbed her purse and escaped her stalled car before a freight train slammed into it on a rural Washtenaw County road.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1Fql4aq ) that the woman’s Honda Accord stopped and wouldn’t restart about 10:30 a.m. Saturday on tracks in Augusta Township.

The train hit the passenger side of the car and pushed the vehicle about 75 yards along the tracks. There are no crossing gates where the car stalled.
