Raleigh woman says GPS led her onto railroad


CARY, NC (AP) -- A Raleigh woman whose car was found stalled on some railroad tracks in Cary says she was just following the directions of her global positioning system.

Police responding to the stalled vehicle were able to warn a train to stop before it hit her car around 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

Thirty-five-year-old Robyn Michelle Walker has been charged with driving while impaired. Wake County Magistrate's Office records show Walker was ordered to surrender her driver's license for 30 days because she refused to take a breathalyzer test.

Police say Walker told them her GPS had directed her onto the tracks and the car stalled and she wasn't sure whether she should abandon it.

It wasn't clear if Walker has a lawyer.
