A man drove his new CRV on the rail track for over two kilometres, with five passengers, in Bangkok’s Bang Kapi district causing delays of almost two hours to train services early Monday. 

The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) plans legal action against the man and will seek damages of  800 baht per minute, according to a report in Thai Rath.

Traffic radio FM 100 reported at 5.45am Monday that six men, believed to be intoxicated, were seen aboard a brand new Honda CRV travelling on the rail track between Rong Poon intersection to the back of Petcharavej hospital on Phetchaburi Road, where the car had become stuck.
