Parking on the Tracks

As I like to point out, when pedestrians cross the T, the train wins. When large vehicles cross the commuter rail, however, it’s usually a draw, as in yesterday’s commuter rail crash. A train on the Franklin commuter rail line hit a stone crusher atop a flatbed truck that was stuck on the tracks. The train was a total wreck, and reports of injuries vary between 17 and 19 commuters, none killed.

The truck driver was outside the truck waving frantically at the train when the accident occurred and was uninjured.  The state of the stone crusher is unknown.
