VIDEO: Unable to choose, Chicago subway train takes escalator and stairs
Ever had a scary moment when you realized you were standing too close for comfort to an approaching subway train? Chicago subway riders had that experience times a thousand Monday when a train at the O’Hare International Airport jumped the tracks, careening up a escalator and set of stairs before stopping. More than two dozen people were injured in the crash, believed to have been caused by the train’s operator falling asleep at the controls.

Uh, yeah … holy crap. After seeing this, we don’t care how slow Muni moves.
