A solo crash on Solano Avenue and Darms Lane on Wednesday morning wiped out a Wine Train shed, one that contains machinery that helps operate the railroad crossing gates.

The driver, Adam Lieberstein, 26, escaped serious injuries. The small aluminum shed was reduced to rubble, its debris scattered along the railroad tracks near Darms Lane, just south of Yountville.
Lieberstein was taken by ambulance to Queen of the Valley Medical Center. “He will be there for at least the night,” said his father, Napa County District Attorney Gary Lieberstein.

Lieberstein’s Honda ripped the shed from its foundation and pushed it about 40 feet down the tracks. The front end of the Honda was crumpled and the windshield was shattered.
According to CHP and Napa County Sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Lieberstein was able to get out of the car on his own. His head hit the windshield, causing a cut to his head, paramedics said.

Lieberstein told officers he was northbound on Solano Avenue, when he lost control of his car, careened off the roadway and plowed into the power shed.
“At this time, alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor,” CHP Officer Jaret Paulson said.
