A driver who was apparently cut off lost control of her vehicle Friday and struck the third rail of the LIRR tracks at West Broadway in Hewlett, according to a witness.
The driver was unharmed, and was helped out of her vehicle by the witness.
A Jamaica-bound train coming through stopped before hitting the car. Nassau County and MTA police were on the scene and removed the vehicle.
A few weeks ago, a LIRR train struck an SUV that ended up on the track.
