Alexiss Yoakun, 18, was heading east on Laurel Street at about 9 p.m. when she drove on to the Mason Street train tracks after trying to take a left turn. She was driving a blue 2015 Dodge Challenger.


Yoakun said she did not know the train tracks were there because she is from Texas and not familiar with the area. There were four people total in the vehicle. No one was injured. 

Customers on the rooftop of the Boot Grill watched it happen, according to resident and witness Nicole Robinson.
