They're getting around to interviewing the injured from the Metra train crash and they're coming up with quotes like these:
- Christine Barnes, 30, of Elmwood Park, said she is upset at the suggestion from transportation safety officials that motorists might be to blame for Wednesday's accident that injured at least 10 people and damaged 16 vehicles. - Via Channel 5
- A woman hospitalized after her car was struck in last week's Metra train accident says she entered the busy intersection before warning signals went off and had no chance of avoiding the collision. - Via Channel 7
- "Fix the problem, that's my message to the NTSB. Fix the problem," he said (husband of victim Christine Barnes). - Via Channel 2
Problems? The only problems here are (A) the village not synching up the traffic lights with the railroad signals and (B) idiots who think trains are going to stop to avoid collisions or swerve around them. NEWSFLASH - no one ever wrote up a train for being where it was supposed to be. There are like three controls on a train and none of them happens to be a steering wheel (forward, backward and brakes we think). Watch these idiots file a lawsuit.
