Wow, is that incident gonna cost LA major dollars in law suits by the suits of law! I certainly hope the bus driver will be immediately discharges or perhaps the train driver, if he/she ran a light. I am amazed at how often city drivers are involved in accidents. Are they texting? Drunk? On drugs? In space? On another planet? Seems like the only thing they are being paid to do IS PAY ATTENTION. But, alas, that priority seems to be a non-starter in their brains, small as they maybe.

if you've ever ridden the metro system in LA, you will not be surprised at this incidence
