Metrolink Train Accident in Corona
On Wednesday, June 2, Metrolink train service in Corona was delayed for an hour after a person was hit and wounded by a BNSF (Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway) freight train on the tracks near the Joy Street intersection, just east of the North Main Corona station, said Metrolink spokesman Jeff Lustgarten. The tracks were inspected and reopened about an hour later. The victim was taken to a local hospital.
Southern California Chartered Bus Tragedy
Last week several teen friends were riding on a chartered Starline Tours double-decker bus, travelling on the 405 in Inglewood, when their 16-year-old friend hit his head on an overpass, and then later died from his injuries.
The young men stated that they were not given any safety instructions before boarding the bus last Thursday. The group was not given any instructions on whether standing was allowed on the upper deck of the bus before they boarded, according to Ryan Ramey, a friend. They also claimed that they did not even realize the bus had seat belts until after the incident. The seatbelts were apparently buried in the seat crevices, not visible to the passengers.
