Another Reason to Build Subways

11Sep07

Another day, another idiot playing chicken with the train. Sometimes the train is Blue. Sometimes the train is Gold. Sometimes the train isn’t even a train, but a really long bus. Rarely is the train Red, because those run underground.

From the L.A. Times:

A Gold Line light rail train carrying dozens of people hit a pickup truck during rush hour this morning in Highland Park, injuring seven people, authorities said. The crash occurred shortly before 8 a.m. at a crossing at Avenue 55 and Marmion Way. A witness told investigators the pickup driver tried to beat the train, which was passing through a crossing that has lights and bells but no gates.

Immediately after the accident, Kanye West held a press conference, vowing to never again take the train.
