He was using the instructions on his GPS device for driving directions when the device signalled a right turn. The car though got stuck right on the tracks as a train was accelerating towards him. He got out of the car just in time as the train smashed into it at 60mph hurling it to a distance of about 100 feet.Some 500 train passengers were stranded for more than two hours during the Wednesday evening rush hour. The accident also heavily damaged about 250 feet of rail
