If your vehicle stalls on railroad tracks when a train is approaching, what should you do?

A Get everyone out of the vehicle.

If your vehicle gets stuck on a railroad track when a train is approaching, don't spend any time trying to free your vehicle. Instead, get everyone including yourself out of your vehicle and walk quickly at about a 45-degree angle to the tracks in the direction from which the train is approaching. That way, if your vehicle is hit, you and your passengers will not be struck by flying debris. Call 911 or the telephone number on the railroad crossing sign.
