Posted at 8:54 AM, Mar 15, 2016

The dash camera on a Brook Park police officer's cruiser caught the terrifying moments that a train crashed into a vehicle stuck on the tracks last week. 

On March 10, officer Harold Duncan saw a company van get caught on the tracks as the warning lights were flashing and the gates were closing.

He pulled up just as the driver opened the door.

Duncan is seen in the video running toward the vehicle, motioning to the driver to get out.

Just seconds after the driver crossed the road, a train sped past, crashing into the van and forcing it forward.
