Union Pacific Railroad Track Shut Down After Car Gets Stuck On Tracks
Caledonia Police have to shut down the Union Pacific Railroad on Four Mile Road just west of Douglas Avenue just before midnight on Saturday after a woman got her car stuck on the tracks.
A woman got her car stuck on the Union Pacific Railroad tracks in the 3200 block of Four Mile Road on Saturday.
According to a report by the Caledonia Police Department, at 11:57 p.m. Erin Suominen, 25, of Racine, went around the barricades near the Four Mile overpass project and hit a gravel pile when her brakes didn’t work. The front end of the car was partially on the railroad tracks. Suominen got out of the car and called 911.
Police officers called Union Pacific Railroad to have the track shut down while the car was removed. Suominen was cited for failing to maintain control and violating a highway closed to travel sign.
Alcohol was not a factor in the incident.
