Fight Against Maturity

That light at the end of the tunnel? It really is a train.

Picture 24

A German motorist mistook an underground train tunnel for a road and drove 200 metres along the tracks before he realised. Max Kirsch, 29, faces drink driving charges after getting his Vauxhall Corsa stuck in the train tunnel in Bochum.

Police and fire trucks had to be scrambled in the middle of the night to stop trains and help remove the car from the tunnel.

Kirsch, 29, had veered left into the tunnel after heading down a service road and had not realised what he had done. He told police he was simply trying to get to downtown Bochum after seeing the latest Harry Potter movie.
