Holy cow, sister: that was a close call.
The Texas Eagle No. 22 train from Chicago crashed into the sister’s car, which was on the tracks, at about 1 p.m., Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari told the Sun-Times. The crash delayed the train to San Antonio about three hours, but no one was hurt.
Sisters of St. Francis from Christ the King would only say that the nun was fine and declined further comment.
Police aren’t sure how the car got stuck on the tracks, but it doesn’t take a leap of faith to figure out how the nun managed to get out in time.
