Pizza shop customers halt train-car collision

(Continued)

ANDOVER, Mass. —

“This area is well lighted,” Metivier said.

He pointed out that because of work being done on a nearby railroad bridge, trains have a 10 mph speed limit on that stretch of the line. A commuter train going more than 50 mph would not have been able to stop so quickly.

A tow truck pulled the car from where it was trapped. Police went to the scene but did not arrest the motorist, who drove away in his car, Santos said.
