One of the cars was towed 150 meters under the train while he was plowing on his way to Pakenham by an officer in Melbourne.

Both cars were supposed to have been involved in a small accident just before the moments, in which one of the drivers at the rear saw the other and both cars pushed the tracks.

The drivers were on the tracks and exchanged details about the accident when the boom gates closed and the train entered.

They were able to get out of the way in time when the train hit the cars, 7News reported.

None of the drivers were injured in the incident, but two people were taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

The train driver is said to have been awakened, but physically unharmed.

He had to use the emergency brakes and sound the horn to alert the drivers when he saw the cars on the tracks.
