    GPS was just the excuse used by a careless driver.

    When my son was born more than 25 years ago, I was going home around midnight after being at the hospital with my wife during labor/delivery since early that morning. I encountered a car stuck on the tracks because the driver had turned onto them thinking in the dark that it was a road. Since there was someone there already helping her, I just drove on. Then I realized that since her helper was not having much success that the car might still be there when a train came by and the noise of the crash might disturb my sleep.
    I checked to make sure that I had my chain in my International Travelall and went back, gave one end of the chain to the helper to attach to the stuck car and then I hooked the chain to my trailer hitch. I pulled the car sideways off the tracks. She drove on her way and I went home to sleep.
