Police: Woman drove onto railroad tracks because GPS told her to

DUQUESNE, Penn. (WFLA) - A Pennsylvania woman recently learned the hard way you can't always trust your GPS.

Late Wednesday night, police received a call about a car on railroad tracks in Duquesne, a city in the Pittsburgh area.

When responding officers spoke to the driver, she told them "her GPS advised her to go this way." 

In a Facebook post, police said the woman was completely sober and did not have any medical conditions that would impact her decision-making. 

In the comments, they clarified that there was no turn involved. "This vehicle was going straight on the highway and veered off," they said.

The car was towed from the tracks and the driver was ticketed for careless driving.
