2 LA Metro train accidents in one day? Is it just a coincidence?
Two people were killed and another four were injured on Monday in downtown LA, following two separate accidents involving Metro Blue Line trains. In the first accident, a pedestrian was hit by a train in Central City. The victim was transported to the hospital in unknown condition and the train was evacuated.
Later that day, two people were killed and three injured after another Metro Blue Line train hit a Honda Civic at 1629 E. 24th St., several blocks south of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway. All the people in the Honda were employees from a nearby soap manufacturing company who were returning home after their shift.
The train was carrying 125 passengers at the time, but only one was reported injured.
