Police in southwest Atlanta saved a man from getting hit by a train just moments after they said he crashed a cop car he had just stolen.
Dramatic video showed the stolen police car speeding away on Greenbriar Parkway just after 2 a.m.
Moments later, Atlanta Police Department’s helicopter spotted the stolen vehicle and tracked it as the suspect took it for a joyride.
The suspect then drove the car onto the train tracks off of McDonough Boulevard before it flipped over. Officers moved in thinking the whole ordeal was over.
They saw a freight train barreling toward the cruiser with the suspect stuck inside.
