Talk about a train wreck waiting to happen!

A woman allegedly dangerously drove her 1999 Volkswagon Beetle along railroad tracks in Indiana, state police said.

April Hill, 22, allegedly drove the car nearly a quarter of a mile on the train line in Floyd County until it became stuck in gravel near a tunnel on Sunday, WKLY-TV reported.

Police were notified of the incident by Hill's sister, who called saying that Hill had been involved in a crash on railroad tracks, but was unsure of her location, according to WDRB-TV.

Hill was found around 5 a.m. when Indiana state trooper Patrick Stinson saw her climb over a steep embankment.

Stinson described her as barefoot, bleeding, covered in mud, disoriented and unsure of the location of her vehicle.

Hill, who sustained a minor injury from the crash, was arrested on preliminary charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated with a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 or higher and a felony count of disturbing a train bed, according to Associated Press.

Although there were no other injuries in the incident, train service was disrupted for hours while officers removed Hill's car from the tracks, WISH-TV reported.
