They stall on the train tracks, and she can neither push the car nor get Harold safely out (he passes out in the car). The last thing we hear is the sound of the train crashing into the car.

[[spoiler: Subverted in that it's ''just'' sound: the tunnel is haunted by the noise of trains long gone, and the Inspector revives unhurt after the "collision".]]
