JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The driver of a 1997 Nissan Altima and the engineer behind an oncoming Amtrak train crossed paths Tuesday in the Ortega area; it was an impending disaster.
"You could hear the Amtrak train," said Annette Brown, "I said 'Oh my God.'"
But to Brown, it was where faith met destiny.
"I was saying to her 'get out of the car,'" said Brown, "but she said 'but my car.'" "That's when I screamed 'get out of the car!'"
Brown, on her way to NAS Jacksonville, got stuck behind the Nissan which was stopped on the railroad tracks.
"There were so many citizens who went around this lady and did nothing to get her off of the train tracks," she said.
Brown said she went around as well but once on the other side stopped and help.
