Woman injured when Light Rail train hits pickup (Nathan Gonzalez, Arizona Republic)
One passenger was slightly injured when a Metro Light Rail train slammed into a pickup Sunday morning.
The 2003 Chevrolet pickup was traveling eastbound on Van Buren Avenue at Central Avenue about 7:15 a.m., when it failed to stop at a red traffic light, said Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson.
The train was unable to stop as it traveled northbound and collided with the passenger side of the pickup, which was carrying four people, including the 29-year-old male driver, a woman and two young children.
Five passengers aboard the Light Rail were not injured. The collision halted service of the train for about 45 minutes.
Wow, it’s not just Houston’s bad drivers who have trouble with trains. Bad drivers are in other places too!
Nicely done, Phoenix. Keep up the good work!
