Saturday was eventful.  A MUNI train rear-ended another one in front of the apartment.  It was before a game, so there were tons of people around and it was a bit crazy.  There were 6 ambulances at one point.  The track was running later that day.
It’s hard to appreciate the damage from the pictures.  Keep in mind that these trains have a giant steel connector that sticks out of each end about a foot or two.  For these trains to be that close, it means that two of these assemblies have met and crumpled enough to shorten the whole thing by four or five feet.  Two giant steel assemblies that are each hefty enough to hold multiple cars together–CRUNCH!
