San Francisco Subway Shuts Down After SUV Goes For A Cruise On The Tracks

Perhaps the driver of an SUV that shut down the San Francisco subway system with a cruise around underground thought he or she was in an action movie where they’ve just got to beat the train to a certain stop before the bad guy can hit the red button and destroy the city. Because why else would it make sense to drive on subway tracks?

Police arrested the driver, says the Associated Press, after his little joy ride shut down the system for two hours. The driver entered the tunnel around 6 a.m. and kept driving until the car got stuck on the tracks and had to stop. Train service shut down and resumed again by 8:15 this morning.

Luckily, the driver didn’t run into any trains along the way, and no injuries have been reported so far. No one knows why the driver thought an early morning jaunt on the tracks was warranted.

So when did Keanu Reeves show up to save everyone? That’s what we want to know.
