DUFFIELDS, W.Va. - A Shepherdstown, W.Va., man made a wrong turn at a railroad crossing Wednesday morning, forcing a commuter train to stop 10 yards from his car, according to West Virginia State Police.
The driver, Jeremy Paul Clark, 24, was charged with driving under the influence and improper parking, police said.
He was being held on $1,500 bond at the Eastern Regional Jail.
A witness told state police Senior Trooper Monte Williams that he was traveling behind Clark's car when he saw the driver attempt to make a right-hand turn, according to charging documents.
The car became stuck on the railroad tracks and was facing south on W.Va. 17 when police arrived, police said.
When Williams asked who the driver of the car was, the witness pointed to a man standing nearby with only one shoe on, police said.
