Four men heroically pushed this car to safety seconds before a moving train blew by

WATCH|  Four good samaritans helped out a driver whose car was stuck at an intersection in Portland, Oregon, affiliate KATU reported. 

 

"Mustang fishtailed down the road" 


Witness, Andrew Rasmussen, said he noticed a red mustang fishtailing a little down the road. When it got to the stop light to go across the train tracks, the car got stuck. 

“Rear wheel drive, real low sports car, yeah probably not the best to be on these kinds of roads,” he said. 

"Four good samaritans" 


Right when the mustang got stuck, four men rushed in to push the stranded driver about 10-15 seconds before a train came by. 


TriMet, the transit service in Portland, told KATU that it was a close call but "trains are rolling slow through intersections and this one had plenty of room to stop."

"Second car to get stuck" 


A witness said that it was the second car that got stuck at this intersection. Luckily no one was injured in either case, thanks to the samaritans.
