A man managed to get out of his car minutes before a train slammed into it. That is what police say happened in Gates around 9:15 Monday night. Police say the man went off Cherry Road, near Coldwater Road and got stuck in the tracks near the railroad crossing.

We're told a oncoming CSX train tried slowing down, but did not have enough time. Police say the train was not damaged.
