After a few too many drinks, a Sunnyvale man decided to do a little off-road driving early Tuesday morning, police alleged.
"Lechuga was intoxicated," Wylie said. He told police that he was driving from Sunnyvale and did not remember where he had initially entered into the fenced-off area of the railway. He was arrested on charges of driving under the influence.
Caltrain workers had to cut a portion of fencing and remove a fence pole in order to get the truck off the tracks, Wylie said. No one was hurt and there was no apparent property damage.
Trains were delayed while the truck was lodged on the tracks, said Christine Dunn of Caltrain. Trains were able to run by using the southbound tracks, but were a behind schedule as of 5 a.m., Dunn said.
