Car Vs. Train


Over on Flickr The Mitzikin Revolution has posted several camera phone shots of what looks like a blueline train hitting a car. There’s no details, just the pics. Anyone have the scoop?

UPDATE: My mistake, seems like these are old pics that were just recently uploaded, not something new. nvrmndkthxbai

One thought on “Car Vs. Train”

  1. Sean,

    In looking at the photo you posted as well as others in the Flickr account, I found a date of June 9, 2006 encoded on the photos. I also noted the identification marker for Fire Station 10 on the aerial of the LAFD Ladder Truck pictured.

    I searched the archives for Friday June 9, 2006 (a day with more than 2,000 Fire Department emergency responses) and could find none for Truck 10 to a ‘Blue Line’ incident or any seemingly related ‘Traffic Collision’ that day.

    Fire Station 10 does indeed serve the South Park/Convention Center area in which the Metro Blue Line runs, and I did limit my search to daylight hours based upon the photo(s).

    If someone can offer a firm date or other information, I may be able to research further. Otherwise, Metro Media Relations (213-922-2700) or the LASD Headquarters Bureau (323-526-5541), whose Deputies are portrayed in the photo(s) – and are the contract provider of Metro security, may be able to offer assistance.

    Sorry that I can’t offer more.

    Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

    Brian Humphrey
    Public Service Officer
    Los Angeles Fire Department
