Metrolink Train Stops Short of Crashing Head-On
Since the Chatsworth Metrolink crash that left 25 dead and 135 injured last year, train engineers have run red lights three times with a possible fourth incident occurring last week, reports the LA Times. This comes despite new safety measures prompted by last year's deadly crash. Last Tuesday a train with passengers inside headed east from downtown when it may have ran a red light. Luckily it stopped a few hundred feet from an oncoming train. No one was injured, but Metrolink board members are angry over the pattern of basic safety rules not being observed.
