Train v. Car Accident Sounds A Lot Like Insurance Commercial
Have you seen the Allstate commercial where the actor pretending to be "mayhem" causes a car crash when the GPS gives the driver a wrong direction? A recent car collision with a train sounds like life imitating this commercial. On Wednesday, a 63 year old woman visiting San Diego from Oklahoma ended up stuck on the Trolley train tracks after taking an inadvertent turn following instructions from the rental car GPS. The lady told police that when the GPS told her to take a left turn, she ended up stuck in the gravel on a railway crossing near Sassafras and Ketner Boulevard in downtown San Diego. When she heard a Coaster train approaching, she was able to get out of the car and run to safety. The train struck her car, causing major damage. The Coaster train was a little dinged up. Fortunately, no one was injured.
