Houston, TX: Twice a red-runner, twice the stupidity?

4 Apr

The MTA Police in Houston has released CCTV footage of a motorist running the red lights at a level crossing, performing a U-turn, re-crossing the railway and at that point his vehicle being hit by a light-rail train operated by Harris County’s Metro Transit Authority. Fortunately the four occupants of the road vehicle, including two children, were not seriously injured. As would be expected the motorist has been arrested. The collision occurred on March 26th, 2014 at about 16.00 on the level crossing at the intersection of Fannin and Naomi streets close to The Astrodome in the Reliant Park district of the city.
