JEFFERSON, OR (KPTV) -

A drunken driver slammed his car into a moving train, left his burning vehicle behind and proceeded to knock on strangers' doors in the area asking for a place to sleep, according to Marion County deputies.

The investigation began Saturday morning when deputies were called out to the 2900 block of Wintel Road South in Jefferson.

People in the area reported a man knocking on their doors and asking for a place to sleep.

The first deputies at the scene noticed a plume of smoke in the distance. It ended up being from a car fire.

Deputies said they found the charred remains of a car that belonged to 24-year-old Kyle Randall, the same man who had been asking people in the area for a place to sleep.

After interviewing Randall, deputies said they were able to piece together what had happened.

According to investigators, Randall was driving east on Wintel Road at 5 a.m. when he went through a stop sign and drove into a moving train. The train hooked his car and pulled it 300 feet with Randall inside.

Once the car was finally free of the train, Randall got out, left his car behind and began knocking on doors in the area looking for shelter, deputies said.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office said Randall was not hurt, but his blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

He was arrested on the charge of DUII and booked in the Marion County Jail.
