JEFFERSON, Ore. — Marion County sheriff’s deputies say a driver crashed into a train before daybreak, ran from his burning car and asked neighbors for a place to sleep.
The sheriff’s department reported Monday that 24-year-old Kyle Randall was arrested on a drunken driving charge after the neighbors called officers about 5 a.m. Saturday.
Deputies came to investigate and noticed a plume of smoke in the distance that turned out to be the burning car. They said the car was dragged 300 feet before Randall escaped. They described it as “burned out.”
