On my usual Metrolink 100 commute to LA Union Station.

 

from Twitter at 5:54AM:

"VC Line 100 to Los Angeles is stopped at Van Nuys due to police activity. Updates to follow."

 

Even though I was late for work, still had to chuckle at this LA Daily News article...

That must've been a big possum that the impact could be felt!

I was listening to the scanner when this occurred. The engineer and conductor "heard" it, rather than felt anything. At the Van Nuys stop, an inspection revealed a biological substance on the cabcar. It had to be investigated to, at the least, rule out human.

Actually, now that I think about it, possums can get fairly big.
