DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – A 26-year-old woman says she doesn’t remember anything that occurred immediately after a train rammed into her minivan at a crossing in the west-central Iowa city of Jefferson. Cori Hunsicker, of Jefferson, told Des Moines television station KCCI  that she tried to restart her minivan after it stalled on the tracks late Monday night. It soon was trapped by the crossing arms as the train approached. She says her instinct was to get her sleeping 5-year-old son from the back seat and run. She says she got out, grabbed her son, and then the train hit. She and her son were taken to a Des Moines hospital.  Hunsicker says her legs were injured. Her son Tyler is in serious condition, but she says she’s been he’ll be OK.
