    Indiana Mom Attempts to Outrun Freight Train, Kills 2 Children

    An Indiana mom attempted to outrun a freight train at an intersection but didn't see a train approaching from the other direction and crashed, killing two of her children, police said.

    Authorities released a video showing Edie Bolanos attempting to outrun an eastbound train in her minivan by cutting through a parking lot and making a quick turn.

    "It seemed that she [Edie Bolanos] was so intent on beating the eastbound train, she never even saw the westbound train that hit her," Hammond Police Sgt. Michael Jorden said.

    Two of Bolanos' children, Crystal, 11, and Anahi, 8, were ejected from the van and pronounced dead at the scene. The other two children in the van were in stable condition.

    "My heart goes out to the family," said Hammond Police Chief Brian Miller. "My only hope with the release of this [video] is that other people will learn a lesson, and maybe we can avoid another tragedy in the future."

    The 65-second video from the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District shows Edie Bolanos turning her minivan into a parking lot, racing east and making a quick turn to get across the tracks.

    The van does not appear to slow down as it approaches the tracks, according to the video. The westbound train struck the driver's side, pushing it into the eastbound train at 9:49 a.m. Saturday.

    Bolanos remained in critical condition Thursday at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago.

    from the video she would have not beat the one she was trying to beat
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    yet another reason to have to pass a mental test before you can have kids.

    Who in their right mind puts their kid in jeopardy like that? When my kid is in the car I turn into a soccer mom

    I have kids and I don't want to watch the video.

    Dear Indiana Mom,

    it is from a distance and you really can't see anything. but i understand.

    this clip reminds me of that old video of that woman at the train station. one train is stopped and blocking her view, she decides to run across the tracks and gets smack by an oncoming train. who ever was taping got splatter with her remains. pretty brutal.

    How stupid do you have to be in order to try and outrun a train?
