According to the news wires and WPIX Channel 11, and presumably every other tv and radio station in NYC, there was a collision between an LIRR and an Amtrak train this morning about 705 am in the east river tunnel.

Witnessess say the LIRR train was stopped in NYP when the Amtrak rear-ended them.

Hmmm....is Amtrak starting to treat their engineers like Greyhound treats their drivers?

LOOK OUT! IT'S COMING RIGHT AT US!!! AAAAAAHHHHH!

Amtrak and Greyhound, leave the driving to us (except if our lonely engineers or bus drivers fall asleep at the controls)

Sheesh, this and the Syracuse incident. I think I'll drive.
