Drunk Driver Ends Up Tooling Down Railroad Tracks
Early Monday morning, Kennewick police found a driver who was not only confused, but alcohol played a part in him ending up driving on railroad tracks near downtown.
Police were called to the area near Canal Drive and Benton Streets, and found this car about 100 feet east of the intersection. The driver's car was half straddling the railroad tracks! Victor Rojas told police he was southbound on Benton Street and thought he'd turned onto Canal, but in fact was a little 'short' and was thumping down the railroad tracks.
Police discovered he was intoxicated, and Rojas was arrested for DUI. Fortunately, no trains came by during the incident.
