Trains, [Buses] and Automobiles

The only thing worse than being on a Greyhound bus at 3:15 a.m. is having that bus spin out of control and crash. Luckily, no one was killed or seriously hurt, but 17 passengers were injured when a bus from Chicago wiped out in Indiana.

In other Indiana transit-problem news, a Chicago-bound South Shore train hit a pickup truck in Gary this morning, killing the truck's driver. The 212 and 214 trains will not operate today, but other lines are running. Well, running behind. Hay-oh.

Indeed, commuting was tough all over Chicagoland today. It's supposed to snow more this afternoon, so plan on extra travel time tonight, too.
