He drove down the railroad tracks and crossed M-46 before catching on fire. It is not known what caused the fire. Officials say the railroad tracks sustained significant damage as a result of the fire. The man was not injured. He was arrested for operating while intoxicated and trespassing on railroad property.  He was lodged in the Tuscola County Jail.  The driver's name will not be released until he is formally charged in 71st District Court.
