Car chase sees moron drive along TRAIN TRACKS as cops pursue in disbelief.

Cheshunt, Hertfordshire - A moron fleeing police dumped a posh 4x4 on train tracks after smashing through a closed level crossing barrier and motoring past stunned commuters.

The car was abandoned on the line at Cheshunt in Hertfordshire after it sped off during an earlier police stop - injuring two cops.

And a huge manhunt is under way this afternoon as police search for the driver.

The drama began earlier today when a male and female police officer tried to stop the car at Cheshunt train station and asked the driver to get out of the vehicle.

Footage filmed from a nearby home records the female officer, who is holding a baton in one hand, shouting: "Get out of the car."

The male officer can then be heard saying: "Out of the car, out of the car."

But the driver - who had the windscreen wipers going at top speed, despite today's sunshine - suddenly reversed backwards.

The door was still open, and both officers were shoved backwards along the street.

Although the female officer managed to get free, the male cop was dragged by the door - before the driver suddenly stepped on the brakes, sending him flying into the road.

The motorist then carried on reversing, smashing into cars behind the 4x4 and around it.

Thankfully, neither officer was seriously hurt, police say.

The car was then driven off at high speed before ending up on the railway line.

CCTV captured at the crossing shows the vehicle smashing through the barrier, which had been down to let a train pass.

More footage from the station shows the car skidding on the sleepers and kicking up a cloud of dust as it races along the track.
