commuting tragedy

had a very unfortunate end to my workday yesterday. i was downtown, and as usual rode the go train home. as we were approaching the aurora station, our train suddenly came to a halt. there was little information given to us passengers on the train other than there had been a "railroad crossing accident".

looking through the headlines this morning, it appears "accident" was a typical official euphemism. in reality, two people were killed. i feel awful :(
