Train collides with limo carrying teens to a Sweet 16 party

Posted: Updated:
SAN ANTONIO, TX - Firefighters rushed to the scene of a train accident involving a limo carrying kids to a Sweet 16 party.  The Hummer limousine was T-boned by a train just east of downtown San Antonio Saturday night.  

Officials say the limousine's tire got stuck on the train tracks and the driver couldn't budge the vehicle. There was an oncoming train and the safety arms came down but the Hummer couldn't go anywhere.

Some of the teens said they were trampling over each other to get out of the vehicle just before the train struck.  The birthday girl, Mariah Garza, and her friends were checked out by EMS. Nobody inside the limo, including the driver, was injured.
