Posted at 6:00 AM, Apr 24, 2017

A man was seriously hurt when his car was struck by a train in Bellevue.

The incident happened shortly before 2 a.m. Monday on McCrory Lane near Highway 70.

Officials on the scene said 21-year-old Alexander Peden was traveling on McCrory Lane and was trying to get onto Highway 70 when his car was struck. 

Surveillance video from a gas station across the street captured the moment of impact. 

The force of the collision pushed the car about a quarter of a mile down the tracks – the equivalent of about three to four football fields.  

Peden was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and is listed in critical condition.
