    Default station 3 -4

    Could you please help me construct a sentence here.

    Situation: I was on the subway and was supposed to get off Station 3 but missed it and got off station 4.

    I want to make a sentence that I kind of got beyond the station I supposedly got off to.


    I _______ Station 3 and reached Station 4.


    Thanks!

    As you weren't driving the train, I would go with 'missed'.
