A driver is lucky to be alive after a train plowed into his stalled SUV on a set of railroad tracks in Flint.

The incident happened at the intersection of Van Slyke and 12th streets around 1 a.m. Friday morning.

After his vehicle stalled, the driver tried pushing the vehicle off of the tracks and was able to get out of the way just before the train hit the SUV.
