A woman and her children barely escape what could have been a deadly situation.

Kentucky State Police say 33-year-old Kimberly Fernandez was trying to cross a set of railroad tracks near Hopkinsville in Christian County, when her car got stuck in the ice. The scary thing was a train was barreling down the tracks.

Troopers say she was able to get her two small children out and to safety before the train hit their car. No one was hurt.
