If a train is going westbound at 20 miles per hour and a tractor-trailer is heading southbound at (I’m not sure how many) miles per hour…
Never mind, I’m not going to try constructing one of those math problems.
I was en route to an 8:30 assignment this morning when my editor called and said a car hit a train at this-and-this intersection on the other side of town. When I arrived at that intersection, I saw nothing but found it hard to believe that the accident would have been cleaned up already — and then saw flashing lights about half a mile down a side street.
Turns out it wasn’t a car that hit the moving train — it was a tractor-trailer.
Train: 1, tractor-trailer: 0.
