The man in the work van that got stuck on the tracks in Brook Park on March 10 safely got out of the van, escorted by officer Harold Duncan, before it got creamed. Brook Park police posted video of the accident and even though the man was safely out of harms way before the train comes into view, the resulting collision is nonetheless stirring.
