“I went through the first gate no problem,” said Harder. “Then I saw the second gate going down.”
After the Amtrak Downeaster hit her, the front of her SUV was completely destroyed, but she was fine.
“The train was coming so fast, it would have been in my visual range just one second before I could have done anything,” said Harder.READ MORE: Dozens Of Dogs And Cats Rescued From Hoarding Case Up For Adoption In Massachusetts
