Some fool in upstate New York followed his GPS’ directions a little too closely, right onto a pair of train tracks. And yes, the car was hit by a train. No one was hurt, though.

The man, a Mr. Jose Silva of White Plains, turned onto the train tracks in Westchester because, you know, that’s what his GPS device told him to do. Again, he’s fine, and no one on the train was hurt. We’re mainly mentioning it to tease the driver, and to offer a warning: use common sense. If your GPS says to turn right, right off a bridge, you may want to use your better judgment.

And if this sounds at all sounds familiar, that’s because the same thing happened in January. At the same train tracks.
