That’s one way to catch a train.

A Marine Park woman is accused of driving through a concrete barricade and landing on top of a subway car in Ditmas Park on March 20.

According to police, she was driving her father’s sport utility vehicle east on Albemarle Road, which dead-ends at a subway ditch just after E. 16th Street, at around 5:22 am Wednesday morning. But when she reached the end of the street, she did not stop and instead plowed through the fence, over the concrete barricade, and onto the roof of a Coney Island-bound Q train, photos show.

She fled the scene on foot, according to police. Hours later, she filed a bogus police report stating that two men had carjacked her and were behind the wheel when the car went flying, according to a criminal complaint.

The woman was charged with filing a false police report and leaving the scene of an accident. Her attorney could not be reached for comment.

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Transit Authority said there were about 50 people on board the train when the vehicle came crashing down. The vehicle was removed by 7:15 am, she said.

No injuries were reported, police said.
