    Early this morning, 7th June 2002 a GO commuter train slammed into a minivan at a level crossing in Concord just north of Toronto.
    The five people in the minivan were killed. The level crossing is protected with lights and a boom. No word yet on what happened.
    As you can imagine, this delayed many people gettint to work.
    I feel for the poor engineer. [​IMG]

    The locomotive happened to be one of the three ion the fleet with a Camera to show the actions of the loco. Apparently the guy crossed around the gates, or tried too...
