Gladwyne firefighters responded just after midnight Friday to River and Waverly roads on a report of a train crash.
A driver exited I-76/Schuylkill Expressway and turned onto the railroad tracks believing it was a road, said Assistant Chief Jim McLean.
The car then became stuck on the tracks, when the two car occupants realized a train was approaching, McLean said. The two were able to exit the vehicle safely.
The back end of the car was smashed in, and the train conductor said the train was only traveling about 30 mph, McLean said.
No one in the car or train was injured, he said.
Penn Wynne and Belmont Hills fire companies assisted, as well as Narberth Ambulance, according to 's website. The Lower Merion Police Department was also on hand until a representative from Norfolk Southern arrived.
Firefighters were on scene for about 45 minutes to an hour, McLean said.
None of the train cars were compromised, according to Gladwyne Fire Co.'s website.
