A wrong turn leads to a car getting hit by a train and a man behind bars.

State Patrol says a man tried to turn the car around when it got stuck on the train tracks around midnight Saturday near 34 Road on Highway 6. State Patrol says that after the car got stuck, the driver, 24–year–old Joshua Snyder, and the two passengers tried to push the car off the tracks, but the train beat them to the punch.

No one was injured and Snyder was arrested for driving under the influence. No passengers were on board the train when the accident occurred.
