DEFUNIAK SPRINGS - A car stalls on the tracks and is destroyed by the train, but not before everyone is able to escape.
State Troopers say a 2011 Nissan Altima stalled about 5:20 Saturday morning on the railroad tracks at State Road 285 and Hwy 90 in Defuniak Springs.
Two people, whose identities are not available, heard the train coming and got out of the car safely. The conductor, Richard Buse of Pensacola, was notified about the car on the car on the tracks, but not in enough time to stop the train.
As you might expect, the car is listed as a total loss at $19,000.
