Light Rail Accident Saturday

Accident Muni often gets into fender benders, but this one was worse than usual. On Saturday, one LRV crashed into another on the section of the N/T line near the Caltrain depot and AT&T Park. Fortunately, no injuries were life threatening, but 16 people including both drivers were taken to the hospital.

This crash occurred in an area with a very low speed limit (3 MPH during games), with dedicated, fenced transit lanes and clear visibility of the track area, so we will be very interested in the results of the investigation. Muni safety rules require all vehicles to stop a minimum distance from vehicles ahead – what happened this time? (If you were there, post your experiences in the comments.)
