Another potential Darwin Award

A train ran into a car which had been abandoned on the railway line in Oamaru:


Officers tracked down the man’s address through his car’s registration number and found him at home.

They say he told them he had been taking a shortcut home along the train tracks, as he often did, when the vehicle became stuck.

A short cut along the train tracks in a car?

Definitely a potential candidate for a Darwin Award.

    Unless the perp was prevented from ever breeding Darwin don’t apply .
    Oi pdm a considerable number of our degraded souls have come to visit and got lost trying to find the way out.
    Traffic is so light down here one can’t just follow the car in front as they might only go by every eight hours or so and clearly this one was another on the wrong track.
