An NJ Transit spokesman tells that it appears the car’s 16-year-old female driver panicked when the gates at the crossing started coming down and she drove onto the tracks. Two passengers got out of the car before it was hit by the westbound Pascack Valley Line train, but the driver did not.

The girl suffered minor injuries and was treated at a hospital. She was released later Sunday.
