The vehicle had veered off the freeway, crashed through a fence, and came to a stop on the train tracks after the driver suffered a medical condition. Correa had been handling a traffic stop nearby when he responded to a call of a car on the tracks. “Before I knew it, that train hit that vehicle and we were able to make it out alive,” said Correa.

Correa said he didn’t feel the weight of the situation until he watched the train launch the SUV from the tracks. “That’s when I realized, ‘Oh, wow, that was a lot closer than what I would have liked,'” he said.
