    10 killed in train collision near Los Angeles

    10 killed in train collision near Los Angeles
    Man intentionally placed car on tracks, police say


    GLENDALE, California (CNN) -- A suicidal man parked his vehicle on tracks Wednesday, causing a commuter train collision that killed at least 10 people outside Los Angeles, officials said.

    "This whole incident was started by a deranged individual who was suicidal," said Glendale Police Chief Randy Adams.

    The suspect, identified as Juan Manuel Alvarez, 26, got out of the vehicle before impact and watched the collision, Adams said.

    Alvarez of Compton, California, is in custody and is expected to be charged with homicide, Adams said.

    "I think he was intent at that time of taking his own life, but changed his mind prior to the train actually striking his vehicle," Adams said.

    The collision and derailment was not an act of terrorism, the police chief said.

    Adams said more than 100 people were injured.

    A spokeswoman for the commuter line, Metrolink, said a Metrolink train hit the car at a railroad crossing, ran into another Metrolink train and crashed into a parked Union Pacific train.

    The number of passengers involved in the derailment in Glendale, California, is not known.

    A law enforcement official identified one of the dead as Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy James Tutino, a 23-year-veteran, who was on his way to work.

    Chris Gray, chief of the Glendale Fire Department, said more than 75 agencies are involved in the rescue and recovery, including some from Pasadena and Burbank.

    Videotape shows Metrolink passenger train cars on their sides with shattered windows and the metal sheeting peeled backward and crushed inward.

    The footage also shows several overturned orange Union Pacific rail cars.

    Firefighters are struggling to reach Metrolink passengers believed to be trapped, placing ladders against the debris to get into the cars.

    Gray said one area of twisted wreckage needs more inspection because authorities are not certain all accident victims are out.

    Because commuter trains are involved it is difficult to determine who the passengers are and how many had boarded, Gray said.

    The National Transportation and Safety Board will take over the investigation. Relatives can call (818) 548-6464 for additional information.

    Unreal.
    With all due respect to this sad bastard, how typical and
    endemic is it of today's self-absorbtion that this fuck would
    put his own selfishness ahead of the well-being of hundreds
    of other people? Get a gun or some pills next time, asshole.
    Hope he feels the full of the law on this. Oh, and gets the
    requisite therapy and counseling, of course...

    He could even use the train. Just stand on the tracks. Don't hurt or kill others you fucking dipshit.

    This guy is the biggest fuckin idiot ever. I'm glad they're charging him with murder. Amazing...this guy thinks he's the only person living in the world and unfortunately, there are many more like him.

    This guy is an ignorant, selfish piece of shit. I'm with Lowlife on this one, he deserves to be tortured.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."
