One person is lucky to be alive after their vehicle was hit by a train Tuesday afternoon.

A witness posting on Facebook said that around 4 p.m. a 2013 Dodge Dart heading south on Lickman Road tried to beat the train at the Keith Wilson crossing. The train won the race, slamming into the car on the passenger side and carrying it 300 yards down the track.

The driver was the only person in the car, and was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

RCMP have yet to confirm the official cause of the crash.
