    not again!

    many years ago i was on the train leaving danbury and just as we were slowing down at west redding, we get rammed full speed by an SUV in the daytime.

    and it was a 90 degree day, we weren’t allowed off before the platform and were stuck onboard for 90 minutes. good thing i had water.

    the teen driver claimed he never saw the train. the tracks are slightly above the line of site of the road and the gates were down and flashing and he ran into and up the incline to ram us.
