[Cyclelicious] New comment on Caltrain hits truck in Burlingame.

Vicki Brown has left a new comment on your post "Caltrain hits truck in Burlingame":

I was on the 312 train. There was a small thump and then all the lights went out and the train rolled to a stop. #&*(*@ We were told the train had "hit a truck". Then we were told the delay would be indefinite and we could get out and look for alternate transportation.

I had boarded in Millbrae so I walked up to ECR, waited for a bus, and bussed back to Millbrae where I just missed a southbound train going through (the 7:32??). Then, unsure about trying to catch another train and not knowing what the delays would be, I drove home and worked from home for three hours.

I finally completed my trip to work (in SUnnyvale) at noon. Ugh.

What I fail to understand is how we have this sort of accident so often. How is it that some people are so blindingly stupid?
