TX officer saves woman before train hits car

October 26, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
A police officer in Texas pulled a woman who had been drinking alcohol off some train tracks, just moments before a train demolished her car. The cop's dashboard camera was rolling the entire time.

Officer Jose Lopez said it was just a typical Saturday morning in Magnolia until he encountered 26-year-old Lynn Eggenberger.

He said Eggenberger was so drunk she didn't even know her car was on the tracks.

Lopez escorted the woman to his patrol car, and less than a minute later, a train plowed into her vehicle.

Eggenberger was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
