A woman road rage suspect is lucky to be alive after a police cruiser she was in was hit by a train after the officer who arrested her left the vehicle parked on a train track.

Yareni Rios-Gonzalez, 20, of Greeley, Colorado, had been arrested by Platteville police in connection with a road rage incident last week involving a firearm.

She was then seated in the back of a police cruiser as officers carried out various checks, seemingly unaware of their precarious position.

More than five minutes later, the officers, apparently oblivious to the extremely dangerous position they were parked in, could be seen chatting with a female suspect.

From nowhere, the horn of a railway train can be heard with its lights.

Seconds later, an officer can be heard yelling at his colleague, “Move your car, stay back!”

But there was no time to react before the train slammed into the police SUV, sending it hurtling down the tracks with Rios-Gonzalez sitting inside.

Incredibly, the mother-of-one survived despite nine broken ribs, a broken arm, a broken sternum and the loss of several teeth in the crash.

She remains in the hospital and faces a long recovery. Further details of her arrest have not been shared, and it is unclear whether the road rage allegations against her are still being pursued.

Investigators explained how officers arrested Rios-Gonzalez in connection with a road rage incident in which a firearm was used.

The police officer whose patrol car was hit by a train has been placed on leave pending an investigation.

“The bigger question is why would you park on the train tracks. it’s just negligence, gross negligence and recklessness,’ Wilkinson told Fox 31.
