Video: Not Your Everyday Train Collision at the Houston Zoo

This isn’t your everyday train collision, but did involve a car on the tracks. It is reported that no one was seriously injured.

Video by: tarlus12. Video info: Actual footage taken on board the Hermann Park train as it collided with a vehicle on Saturday, January 18th. This video was taken by me on my Nexus 4 a few seconds before the incident. 

About half a million people every year ride the miniature train that has been making happy loops through Hermann Park for half a century.

So it should come as no surprise when the train occasionally crosses a park road or a piece of parking lot.

But somehow on Jan. 19, a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, the driver of a sedan managed to cross the tracks just as the train arrived in the same spot next to the Houston Zoo.
