Minivan crashes into Light-rail
A minivan crashed into the Hiawatha Light-rail in Minneapolis Sunday.
No one was seriously injured, including the passangers on the train.
The accident happened around 4 p.m.. The train was traveling north on 54th Street between the 50th Street/Minnehaha Park and VA Medical Center rail stationson when a minivan turned onto the track, according to the Pioneer Press.
According to the Star Tribune, Bob GIbbons, spokesperson for Metrotransit didn't think that that intersection was a dangerous place.
The driver, a 77-year-old man, was brought to Hennepin County Medical Center for observation.
The light-rail shut down for about one hour.
This is not the first accident the light rail has had. There have been a number of them over the years. Perhaps the transit should install more gardrails to protect other incidents from occuring.
