North Valley Authorities are trying to find out if a car destroyed by a train this Thursday morning was the getaway car for some would-be thieves.The CHP says this white Toyota was empty and parked on the tracks off Avenue Seven near Highway 99 in Madera County.

A freight train heading northbound ran right into it sending it a quarter mile from the point of impact.

Nobody was hurt... And the two suspects ran from the scene.
