Nine dead in train wreck
A fire official in Glendale, California says it appears that nine people were killed in today's train derailment.
Authorities say the wreck near Los Angeles resulted from a vehicle that was on the tracks and was struck by one of the trains. Glendale Police Chief Randy Adams says a southbound commuter train struck the vehicle and derailed, causing the train to strike a northbound train. In addition to those killed, more than 100 people have been hurt. Firefighters picked through the twisted wreckage, which was scattered across the tracks. They carried wounded passengers to a triage center in a nearby parking lot.
