Trimet commuter disaster of the day

Somebody got hit by a garbage truck so Portland police closed everything screwing Trimet riders since they had no ability (unlike people in their cars) to go around the problem.

No its not Trimet's fault other than they (and the city of Portland) built their transit system in most vulnerable of places which means everything that happens around them causes problems.

City and Trimet planners made the huge mistake of allowing every single type of transportation to operate amongst the transit vehicles making an already fragile  system even more fragile than necessary.

As you can see, this happened right near the tracks
