Very nice detective work, KSnow. Unfortunately, the rules of evidence will probably prevent that information from being mentioned in court.
I agree that, based on what we know so far, the blame or fault doesn't appear to lie with the railroad, though I suspect it won't be so clear cut if this goes to trial. Could the railroad have spent more to build a bridge and eliminate the possibility of this kind of accident? Sure, but that doesn't mean it would have been a justifiable expense, or an appropriate one. View Comment
I think it's likely that the slow-moving traffic (due to another accident) on the Taconic, and a backup on Commerce St ahead of the SUV, but between the tracks and the highway, will be the major factor in causing the accident.
I have voted in every general election since the new paper ballot machines replaced the old, good, mechanical ones and removed privacy in voting. I have never heard of, or seen evidence of, these "plan B" machines prior to this article. They are a well kept secret. View Comment
Why is there so little information in this article? Surely, which side of 9A, which side of 134, where was 9A closed....could have been stated. Almost no point to publishing the article. A person driving by would know more. View Comment
This is going to be as much of a disruption for northbound traffic as for southbound. Although the project is work on the bridge on the northbound lanes, the effect is that both directions are reduced to two lanes from three. View Comment
