Oh My: Dangerous Detour, Concerning Staring
Also in strange police news, a customer tried to pass off fake cash.

I hate rush-hour traffic as much as the next gal, but taking a detour along some railroad tracks wouldn't be my first thought. To this woman's credit: she didn't know that the "road," onto which she turned near Northborough center was not a road, but rather, railroad tracks. The car got stuck and she got out of the car while waiting for police.
I'm guessing that the Holliston gas station employee who called police about an alleged crime three days after it happened delayed reporting the crime because he didn't know about it immediately. (Fake bills were passed off as real money.) But it's funnier to imagine the employee staring at Monopoly money for a few days, determining it wasn't real currency, and calling police.
A 911 caller in Sherborn reported seeing a one-vehicle crash this week on the Natick line. When the caller went to check on the driver, she just stared at the caller.
