Train tracks shut down in Grand Junction to remove car from tracks

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. A woman got her car stuck on Union Pacific train tracks early Friday morning.

Around about midnight in Grand Junction police were called out for a report of a two-door white car stuck on train tracks off of I-70B under the 29 Road overpass.

It appears the driver tried to drive over the railroad tracks, but there was no crossing nearby. She was given a sobriety test and was eventually taken into custody. Her name has not been released.

Her car was towed from the tracks which Union Pacific had to shut down for a couple of hours to check for damage and make sure trains could operate over the track safely.
