A driver managed to capture cell phone video of the exact moment a train slammed into a sheriff deputy’s cruiser.

The video shows the Midland County Sheriff’s deputy waiting at a railroad crossing.

Once the train passes, the deputy turns on his sirens to respond to a call for a baby not breathing.

The video shows the SUV attempting to cross the track not seeing the second train.

That’s when the video shows the second train slamming into the deputy’s SUV.

The deputy was able to get out of the car and walk around but was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

No word yet on his condition.
