    Yep. Right around the corner from me.

    Apparently they don't think this one was 'driver error' like the previous two recent trainc rashes in the US where the driver was txting. She had her foot on the break at the time of the crash so it appears to have been mechanical and possibly out of control.

    DC Metro is a failing moneypit that is run terribly and this isn't gonna help. It is subsidized by the government because without it the government would cease to function. It feels like some of the horrible problems we all knew it has been having manifested in this accident.
