So my friend who was in the Train Crash last year tends to have more problems on the train than most people I know. Delays at the start of the trip and at the end so we tease him about it. Today I called him after he left for his parents and the train left about 20 minutes late, no crisis. But, he calls me about an hour later, they’re stopped west of Ann Arbor and they hit someone on the tracks. He didn’t have much in the way of details.

So I just called him for a status and it turns out it was a guy on a bicycle (I’m assuming on the tracks); I guess the conductor said he saw him before they hit him (I’m surprised they gave them that much info). The train was stopped for a while (I’m guess less than 2 hours) while things were checked out; he could see flashlights and cameras going off. The odd thing is they never found the guy, but they found the bicycle.

Update – This mLive Ann Arbor Article says no one was hurt and contradicts a bit of what my friend says that he heard the conductor say. It’s the only article I can find and it was from early last night, so I have no other way to verify info. (This is the right link, their whole site just seems to be having problems right now)

So I hadn’t gotten my tickets to see Brandi Carlile at The Ark (in Ann Arbor), I had looked before but got confused by the floor layout that they show on TicketMaster (here’s a better floor layout) so I didn’t get them. I figured I better get them before they premiered her new video on Grey’s Anatomy tomorrow night since they might sell out. I really wanted to see her in a small venue again but I missed it and they’re all gone :(

She was so good last summer and it was a smaller place and I don’t even think it was sold out. If anyone happens to end up with an extra ticket for the May 9, 2007 show in Ann Arbor, I’ll buy it from you…
