The 30-year-old man somehow took the ultimate wrong turn while driving in the direction of his home in Marmande and ended up on the tracks.
When police near the town of Villefranche-du-Perigord received a call from a man who was clearly intoxicated, they dispatched emergency services to the scene. When he was tested, the man had .128 blood alcohol content.
The tracks on the Périgueux-Agen TER were damaged by the man’s car and service was suspended on Friday morning so the vehicle could be removed from the tracks and repairs could be made to the track’s electrical system.
The “lost” motorist is due in court on February 5th.
