WEEHAWKEN, New Jersey (WABC) -- As if mass transit didn't have enough problems: A New Jersey woman was arrested and charged after a car ended up on train tracks in Weehawken early Friday morning, officials said.

At around 3 a.m., Port Authority Police received a call about a car stopped on the light rail tracks on River Road near the Lincoln Tunnel.
