Yesterday morning's crash involving a Metrolink train and a Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway train sent five people to the hospital with minor injuries. The trains were trains in opposite directions and the front locomotive of the Metrolink train sideswiped the 92nd car of the 102-car-long train. What exactly happened is under investigation.

"No matter what happened, it's not acceptable," said Keith Millhouse, vice president of the Metrolink board and a Moorpark city councilman, to the LA Times. "We'll have to figure this out. I have a zero tolerance for any type of incident, no matter how minor it is."
