Light Rail Train Collides With Bus in Phoenix, Eight Hurt

A bus collided with a light rail train just after 6:30 a.m., sending eight passengers to the hospital "for precautionary reasons," cops says. Some victims complained of neck and back pains. (Cha-ching!)

Phoenix police report this morning that a city bus trying to turn right onto Washington Street from 1st Avenue hit a southbound train. This is at least the second train-on-bus accident we've heard about. Another refresher course for drivers is probably being planned as we write this.
