Elderly driver crashes onto railroad tracks

By From page A3 | October 14, 2012

A 70-year-old Davis man drove his silver 1996 Lexus SUV through the fence near the Boy Scout cabin at First Street and Richards Boulevard on Saturday afternoon.

According to the Davis Fire Department, just before 12:30 p.m., the man’s vehicle rolled over downed telephone poles and ended up on a service railroad track. A good Samaritan helped the man back his vehicle off the tracks and onto gravel.

The man said he was parking the SUV when he became dizzy, according to police. He was taken by ambulance to a Sacramento hospital for evaluation.
