An impatient Pennsylvania woman nearly lost her leg after she tried to get past a slow-moving freight train.
The incident played out Friday morning around 7:30 as a train passed Auburn Street near Basin Street in Allentown.
The woman, growing weary of standing around while the train passed, crawled underneath a tanker car in an attempt to get to the other side, said Allentown Police.

Trains continued to run along the tracks Friday afternoon.
