Here we go again, this time 60 miles east of Los Angeles in Rialto: "Police in Southern California say a Metrolink commuter train and a freight train have collided in San Bernardino County but there appear to be no serious injuries," says the Associated Press. "Rialto police Lt. Joe Cirilo says the trains may have sideswiped each other near a station shortly before noon Thursday. Both trains are upright and still on the track."
