ORLANDO, Fl. (CBS) — The Orlando Police Department has released video of the SunRail train-SUV collision from Wednesday.

The train hit the SUV around 4:20 p.m.

The video appears to show the SUV go under the warning guards as the gates lower. The driver sits in front of the tracks for about 14 seconds before attempting to cross them, the video shows.

During the attempt to cross, the train crashes into the SUV. The driver of the SUV was taken to a local hospital in serious condition.

The Florida Department of Transportation said a southbound train was stopped for about 90 minutes.

“We heard the loud boom, boom. Looked out the window immediately,” Cobb Jones said, describing when he looked down at the incident from his office.
