There were no injuries to any of the 200 passengers or crew inside the train, Christina E. Leeds, senior director of public relations for Amtrak, told WPTV. The Silver Meteor Train 97 was heading from New York to Miami when the 2 p.m. crash occurred, Amtrak officials said.
The crash pushed the SUV about a half-mile before the train stopped.
"It sounded like a shotgun going off," Earl Megonigal, a check station operator at the wildlife management area, told the Post. "Then we heard the train stopping and ran up there and saw all the car parts."
