A GPS direction landed woman’s car on railroad tracks.

A woman from Houston using her GPS to navigate to a location, said it gave her a turn that landed her vehicle down the railroad tracks.

According to the woman, she was navigating to a location, at approximately 7 a.m. on Saturday, when her GPS told her to make a right turn and the turn was along the rail road tracks.

The sudden right turn caused the vehicle to go southward down the railroad tracks at the Rebeck Crossing and become stuck on the rails of the tracks.

After a check of the driver’s license, she had an outstanding warrant out of Harris County and was arrested and transported to the Orange County Jail.

No injuries or property damage were reported in the incident.
