Three people are recovering Tuesday night after they survived a harrowing accident as their car was torn in half by an Amtrak train when the driver of the car tried to beat the train across the tracks.Video surveillance from a nearby bar captured the accident that the driver, his cousin and his cousin’s pregnant girlfriend narrowly survived. Stacey Peterson Jr., 21, was driving north on Willow Branch Avenue, just off Roosevelt Avenue about 10:30 a.m., when the train came through the crossing, hitting and spinning the car, and ripping off the back seat and trunk.
