A woman driving a Toyota Corolla got stuck on the Caltrain tracks near East Meadow Drive in Palo Alto Wednesday night when she made a wrong turn onto the tracks, Caltrain spokeswoman Tasha Bartholomew said.
About six or seven police cars responded to the call, according to one eyewitness.
Trains were single-tracked around the Corolla until a tow truck could remove it from the tracks. Bartholomew said it took about an hour to free the car because the first tow truck called to the scene wasn't able to remove it, so a second truck had to be called.
The incident caused two trains to be delayed by about 10 minutes, but the car was not damaged and the woman was not hurt, Bartholomew said. Bartholomew added that the woman was not cited because there were no drugs or alcohol involved and she was "very cooperative."
