SHERMAN, TX ― Police responded to a bizarre accident early Wednesday morning in Sherman involving a train and a Ferrari, and a very lost and intoxicated driver. First News obtained the 911 call made from the scene early Wednesday morning.

Police say around 3:30 a.m. an intoxicated driver managed to get his 2000 Ferrari stuck on a set of railroad tracks on Howe Drive in south Sherman.

The driver, Jeff Sabold, 48, called authorities for help. They told him to get out of the car shortly before the train he told them he saw approaching slammed into his vehicle.

The car was a total loss. Police say low ground clearance may have been what caused the car to get stuck.

"This is a good example of why people should not operate a vehicle while driving intoxicated. Your judgment is impaired, you not only put yourself in danger, but you put everyone who is in reach of your vehicle in danger to include trains," Sgt. Bruce Dawsey of the Sherman Police Department said.

No one was injured. Sabold was arrested for driving while intoxicated. Additional charges are pending.
