PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia bus driver is facing disciplinary action because she was not buckled in when she fell out of her seat and nearly hit a freight train.

The train was on tracks that run down the middle of a street near Philadelphia’s Delaware River port. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority says the bus driver was trying to maneuver her vehicle around the train, which was blocking an intersection Tuesday evening.

Video from aboard the bus shows the driver slipping to the floor while she grabs for the wheel. The bus jumped a median and veered toward the train before coming to a halt on the tracks.

Two passengers sustained minor injuries.
