Firefighters survey the remains of a 2008 Honda Fit that tangled with two southbound Southern Railway of Vancouver Island locomotives at the Waddington Road railway crossing Tuesday.

The accident happened just after 4:30 p.m. when the car turned off Terminal Avenue and failed to stop at the crossing, police said.

The 47-year-old woman driving the car suffered extensive upper body bruising as the vehicle was battered and dragged about 20 metres down the track.

Police issued the driver a ticket for failing to yield at the crossing, which had working warning lights.
