Hey, remember that BART derailment yesterday that forced 75 or so passengers to hump it out through the tunnel? Of course you do.
The Examiner’s Mike Aldax has followed up. Highlights from his report:
— The investigation into why this happened will take “several days, if not weeks” aka “longer than the memory or attention span of the Bay Area media.”
— In the derailment, “Three of four wheels at the front of the train went off-track”
— BUT Oakland Fire Battalion Chief Jenny Ray says “‘[The derailment] was very minor,’ Ray said. ‘It was hard to actually see that it was derailed.'” WHAT ABOUT THOSE THREE WHEELS JENNY?
— “The last time a BART train derailed, it occurred ‘in roughly the same spot as [Wednesday’s] incident,'” But BART spokesperson Linton Johnson doesn’t think the two are related. Having just watched Paranormal Activity, I’m not so sure.
