WOODS CROSS, UTAH- A woman survived after her car was hit by not one, but two different trains.

Police say the 29-year-old was fleeing officers at speeds up to 100 miles per hour when she drove under crossing arms and smashed into the side of a train.

Officers tried breaking the window of her car to get her out but had to jump out of the way of another train that hit the car. That collision happened about a minute after the first train.

She had some broken bones and it isn't clear if she faces any charges.

The chase started after officers were called to a house in a suburb of Salt Lake City.
