Commuting goes horribly wrong outside DC

edited June 2009 in Social Entropy++
Something has gone very very badly

Looks like two metro trains smacked head on just outside of DC near the Maryland border.

Commuting in DC is a contact sport to begin with. On the beltway, on the station platforms, anywhere, but this isn't good at all.

So, tell us some stories of your horrible commutes or Unbreakable-esque accidents you've made it through.


Also, real reason for this thread: Someone call Lostwords (I lost his number) and make sure he wasn't on that train.

K?

    Only 2 dead? Man, they really know how to build those things!

    Too bad not putting them on a collision course poses a problem.

    I was on a cartrip when I was a kid and I swear to God I saw a corpse a mile down the road from a weight checkpoint

    It almost gave me a heart attack but nobody in my car believed me and to this day I suspect that dudes body was dragged off by wolves and it's all my fault because nobody would listen

    I don't see how you accidentally stab the fuck out of someone's leg?

    I don't see how you accidentally stab the fuck out of someone's leg?

    They were both wasted as hell, farting around. My friend shouts "if you don't watch out I'm gonna stab the fuck out of you! this is too much!" and then my friend refuses to slow down and, sure enough, he accidentally stabs the shit out of him. Huge cut all down his leg.

    He was bleeding everywhere and drunkenly screaming about how he doesn't need no hospital, he'll just soak it in whiskey and duct tape that sumbitch back up

    My dad commutes to work in DC from Maryland.

    I should probably check on him or something.

    I'm pretty sure he drives, though. He always used to at least.

    If I had left work about 20 minutes early I might have been involved in this because I take the red-line home. Luckily neither myself or my parents were on those particular red-line trains.

    It really sucks for everybody involved though, they are up to 6 confirmed dead and waiting for Fenty to make a statement.

    So when I heard about this on the news, I was like, "That's the line Callius and Shoe used to take."

    Then I thought, "I should check PA forums to see if anyone was on those trains."

    Then I waited a couple days.

    Anyone hear from them? Do they even live in Montgomery County anymore?

    Rode up on a van accident where the driver was partially ejected and the van rolled onto him. Squished his head flat.

    i went to cover a crash for the news once where traffic was stopped on the interstate and this little sedan was at the back of a line

    an 18 wheeler didnt stop

    ran up the back and over the sedan to just about the drivers seat

    there were 3 young teenagers in the back of the car on their way home from school, all 3 were decapitated
