PENNSYLVANIA – According to police in Pennsylvania, a woman who was following a GPS veered off a road onto railroad tracks, resulting in a stranded car and careless driving ticket.

The City of Duquesne Police Department began a social media post earlier this week with, “The GPS told me to do it…” The post shows a photo of a white sedan sitting on a railroad track parallel to a multilane road.

According to police, the woman was “100% sober and had no medical conditions affecting her decision making.”

Police said when officers arrived at the scene, she told officers “her GPS advised her to go this way.”

The incident occurred about 10 miles outside of Pittsburgh Wednesday night and the car needed to be towed away.
