It's was something of a Christmas miracle on the Caltrain tracks in San Mateo Monday night.

A woman who accidentally drove into the path of a southbound train managed to get out of her car moments before it was hit. But she didn't have time to grab her dog.

The car was totaled, but get this, somehow the pooch survived the crash. The canine suffered some minor injuries, but it should be okay.
