This is one lucky guy. Yesterday, Jorge Luis Cancino-Sanchez, 37, who was driving in his 1999 Ford Taurus, was hit by a train and, though his car is now a large pile of scrap, he walked away unharmed. Speaking to the policemen, he said that he recently moved from Miami to Plant City, was looking for directions and didn’t hear the train coming. A witness said it appeared that Cancino-Sanchez ran a stop sign at the crossing.
He said he drove into the road leading to Universal Structures looking for someone to give him directions.

Last year, a truck driver was not as lucky as this guy, because he was killed by an Amtrak train at the same crossing.
